Part 2 – Construction of a live-work building My project is a live/work building. This is a somewhat old concept that is not yet readily employed. My live/work building would consist of a office style section that is laid out with a central cafeteria/dining facility. On the exterior would be the offices that look out onto green fields and the wind power mills further up the hill that provide power to the complex. Cooling would come from a local lake, which would further reduce the impact of the live/work building on the environment. There would also be a residential component of the live/work building. It would be attached through an above ground tunnel system as well as through exposed quads. It would not view the working section of the building and its style would be different so as to assume a more “normal” removed housing unit. The complex would be attached to the neighboring downtown through a subway system that runs off clean wind and solar power. All of the basic functions of a community would be available on site, or downtown via a short train ride. A benefit to the facility would be that it would eliminate the need for commuting to work. As there would a place to obtain food and ample paths/exercise facilities, as well as an in-house health center, other than the need to get out and get away, people would not need to leave the complex.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
