The Exhibit Staging Center (ESC) is the reimagining of a dilapidated 1960s windowless public works building. It now showcases the latest green building technology, transforming a degraded brownfield site into a place dedicated to the physical well-being of its occupants and visitors, and as a healthy habitat for native species. The net-positive ESC serves to inspire the Phipps Conservatory’s half a million annual visitors, demonstrating that with the right priorities, even the most unhealthy spaces can enhance the health of people and the ecosystem in which they are nested.
