The Porter School is the first LEED Platinum certified project in Israel and amongst the 17 greenest projects in the world that achieved 92 points and above in the LEED certification. The eco-conscious design is reflected in the eco-wall that produces the entire energy source for the mechanical ventilation of the building, saving energy and reducing carbon emissions to create working environment for all the students and the researchers. Geotectura was chosen to continue with the research laboratory design within the eco-wall and in the building in order to make even more cutting edge spaces and environmental benefits opportunities. The project is a living lab of ecological and social values for the community and the environment. It tells the story of the complex sustainability term and simplifies it to the public by strolling along the eco-wall, the ground floor and the roof that present current research of energy, water, soil, vegetation, materials and so on that they can see, touch and learn. The building can absorb changing technology and keep being relevant and attractive for leading researches around the world. The eco-wall is an iconic ever-changing window display for the other universities and visitors and act as a constant social-educational contributor.
