The American Geophysical Union (AGU) is renovating its existing 62,000-square-foot headquarters building, located in the Dupont Circle neighborhood in Washington, D.C., to serve its mission of “science for the benefit of humanity”. The building is being renovated to net zero site energy standards, where the building captures or generates as much energy on-site as it uses annually.

Zeponic Farms is an innovative vertical urban farm located in a repurposed shipping container that may grow as much produce as an acre of a traditional farmland while using 95% less water, a fraction of the fertilizer, and with no pesticides or herbicides. Vertical farming techniques have been developed to grow more food on a smaller land footprint, using less water and fertilizer, and reducing the distance traveled by produce from farm to urban table. Discuss vertical farms as new land uses and as potential tenants and amenities for commercial buildings.  Register at
