I have been interested in the GRoW project for quite some time now and wanted to find a way to become more involved. Getting accepted into the graduate program in the ecological practices research group at the University at Buffalo, presented the option of joining the Solar Decathlon studio and becoming a part of this hard working team.
Being new to the project, my position is to bring a new perspective to the interiors of the house. Working on the interiors of the GRoW Home has already been a huge learning experience because other than making design decisions, I have to also consider material options in relation to all aspects of the competition.
GRoW Buffalo is a unique opportunity to gain real life experience and work towards something incredibly beneficial. Not only is it exciting to gain this new perspective through my academic studies, but it is also exciting to teach others in the community and elsewhere about the ideas the GRoW Home stands for.
