One of the most difficult challenges New Yorkers [1] face is finding space — space to live, space to work, space to build — and finding space for a garden and an environmental learning center is no exception. Following the old mantra “if you can’t build out, then build up,” the Greenhouse Project [2] at the Manhattan School for Children PS 333 made up for their lack of backyard space with an incredible rooftop destination for their staff and students. Designated as a meeting point focused on urban agriculture education, this rooftop glasshouse classroom features a hydroponic farm with an innovative system of teaching sustainability in the city.
