The Greenest Building addresses an issue that has become more pressing within historic preservation as time goes on by posing questions on the best course of action for lowering carbon emissions in the built environment. In an era when up to 30% of the existing building stock is being demolished for new construction, this documentary makes a case for reusing buildings instead of demolishing them as a greener alternative regardless of how “green” the replacement is planned to be. The film will be preceded by an introduction from Chris Reinhart, visiting assistant professor in the Eskenazi School's J Irwin Miller Architecture program. [57 min; documentary; English]
