UPENN Law School Philadelphia Pennsylvania

“The building puts an emphasis on integrating aspects of environmental sustainability, creating a healthy, light-filled indoor environment and reducing greenhouse gasses through energy-efficient design. One example: Golkin Hall’s rooftop gardens not only provide attractive areas for student and faculty collaboration but also reduce the amount of storm water entering the city’s combined sewer/waste water system, counteract the heat-island effect caused by conventional dark roofs.” (Penn Law’s Golkin Hall Awarded Gold LEED Status for Environmental Design, www.upenn.edu)
