A large array of solar panels [5] will generate 36kWh for the entire complex on site, thereby reducing dependance on the national grid and cutting overall carbon emissions. Further carbon cutting will be achieved with a green roof [6], which acts as an insulator that improves the microclimate, prevents storm water runoff and sucks up carbon emissions [7].

The ultimate mixed use development [8], the commercial campus also known as Project ONE merges a variety of functions in one central place – a move that helps to control urban circulation. In addition to retailers such as Anthropologie [9], “Project ONE will house Clemson University‚Äôs 70,000-square-foot Graduate School of Business, signifying an evolution of the 124-year-old institution,” according to the design brief. “The building will connect Clemson students, faculty and staff to what Forbes calls one of the top-10 downtowns in the country.” Phase two is expected to reach completion in the summer.
