T

he East Building Addition at Adlai E. Stevenson High
School was needed for anticipated student growth. However, a visionary leadership team had a larger goal - to
redefine the learning experience for students. The building
addition is designed to be net-zero, achieve LEED platinum
certification and Energy Petal certification from the International Living Future Institute. The project features integrated
green elements, flexible learning environments and a focus on
biophilia and wellness. Living architecture in the project takes
the form of a 7,100 sf green roof, a 1,250 sf rooftop greenhouse,
and two two-storey living walls each 600 sf.
The green roof is approached through an ecosystem lens and
designed to be rooted in place, by featuring a wide variety of
plant types and species from the surrounding prairie, meadow,
and farm land uses. The green roof does not manage stormwater
in isolation - it is integrated into a campus-wide stormwater

management system, designed to simulate natural hydrology.
It was awarded the maximum possible credits through an
alternative compliance path, by demonstrating no additional
post-development runoff, and capturing over 90 per cent of total
suspended solids in runoff.
Two 2-storey living walls installed in the atrium are integrated
into the building's HVAC system, and treat return air to improve
air quality and reduce outside air exchanges for greater energy
efficiency. They were also found to reduce sound reverberation
and produce natural sounds in the form of flowing water, improving the acoustics of the space. While the interior living walls were
water intensive, they reuse 97 per cent of the water circulating
through the system and humidified indoor air, improving the
comfort of the building during the heating season.
The project was awarded exceptional performance credits
in five areas, as well as innovation credits for a number of
