What will it take to bring the largest residential Passive House in the world from conception to completion? Join project leads from Related, Hudson Companies, Handel Architects, and Steven Winter Associates for an in-depth presentation on Cornell University’s high-rise residential tower, designed to Passive House standards and currently under construction on Roosevelt Island. Part of their new tech campus, the 26-story building will house students and faculty members in 350 apartments, making it both the largest and tallest PH building in the world upon completion.

Thank you to our event partners AIA New York and New York Passive House.
