Team: Maria Aiolova, Mitchell Joachim, Kieran McKernan, Aaron Lim
This study represents the first attempt to develop a metric for the different types of building agriculture and compare them to conventional agriculture. What does it take to grow 1lb of lettuce? How much land, water energy is necessary? How much CO2 is released in the atmosphere? What is the construction cost and dead weight of the building integrated solutions?
