The Harvard Center for Green Buildings and Cities (CGBC) retrofitted its headquarters, a pre-1940s house in Cambridge, MA, into a first-of-its-kind test case to demonstrate unprecedented levels of building efficiency and promote substantial shifts in the design and operation of existing buildings. Scheduled to coincide with the completion of the retrofit, the Harvard HouseZero Typology Symposium will gather GSD faculty members to discuss the building’s typology. Presentations will discuss design, technologies, historical issues and more—resulting in a diverse range of observations that illustrate the complexity involved in realizing an ultra-efficient retrofit and determining scalability.
