Member Only: MuseumLab Green Building Tour
August 14, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am EDT$10.00
Green Building Alliance is excited to present a green building tour of the newly-opened MuseumLab to our members! MuseumLab occupies the former historic Carnegie Free Library of Allegheny, where it offers space for older kids (10+) to experiment and create.
Our tour will be led by Museumlab project director Chris Cieslak and project manager Christi Saunders. The pair will share a behind-the-scenes, exclusive look into the construction and design of the renovation. You’ll get a look at The Stacks, a three story structure made of rope woven around the former library’s steel bookshelves. You’ll also see the Make Lab where children can build their own wood shop creations and enter the virtual reality of the Tech Lab. Chris and Christi will provide details about the revitalization of much of the original structure of the 1890 Carnegie Free Library, and the multiple green building guidelines they have followed to ensure a sustainable future including LEED, WELL, and the Pittsburgh 2030 goals for energy use reduction.
This tour is open to GBA members only. Check out all the ways you can join our community.
