  1-Aragonne Child Development Center   San Francisco's first solar-powered school close to its largest community garden. Neighbor and community participation. This is a green building due to its solar performance and its material selections. The school was built with minimal environmental impact. Natural ventilation, daylighting, solar energy, passive solar design, recycled and low-VOC building materials are some of the sustainable design principles used. Landscaped with indigenous, edible plants that also stabilize the soil and control erosion. Durable, benign and recycled materials used. Low flow toilets. Biocomposite panels used for art supply cabinets and cubbies. The outdoor play structure, ceramic tiles, and carpets incorporate recycled content. Agricultural-waste-fiber panels for millwork and interior finish. {Project description field}
