HOK completes the Windy City’s first green parking garage with integrated wind turbines

Almost every new build these days incorporates multiple ‘green’ elements as the need to protect our surroundings grows stronger day by day. Environmentally-friendly builds aren’t just confined to residential and commercial projects however, as HOK have exemplified with their latest Chicago build – the Greenway Self-Park. In contrast to the classic closed-exterior wall design of many parking garages, HOK have installed a naturally ventilated external wall complete with glazed screen that completely eliminates the need for a mechanical system. This unique glazed screen is comprised of a visually layered fabric of breathable glass channels that progressively reveal the inner concrete super-structure of the building.
