How a Design Studio Created a Blueprint for Regenerative Architecture

Daniel Litwin was joined by Christiana Moss, founder and designer of Studio Ma, to talk about regenerative architecture and the benefits of net-zero-energy design.

According to Christiana, net-zero-energy design, the core philosophy behind regenerative architecture, means “it essentially gives back more than it takes. It produces more energy than it consumes.” She went on to explain. A big part of that energy is carbon and it’s relation to building materials. That means using rapidly renewable woods and other materials that regenerate and capture or store more carbon than they emit.

The Studio Ma office in Phoenix, AZ, named Xero Studio, is an example of regenerative architecture in practice that features net-positive energy on an annualized basis. While they’re working on doing the same for water usage, it’s difficult when an office is located in an actual desert. When asked about how the office is benefiting the community, Christiana said “we’ve made a presence here.”

Christiana also gave her thoughts on the future of regenerative architecture in a post-COVID world, remarking that the quarantine has only accentuated our need for being outside and breathing fresh air. “We’re all living through an experiment right now that is, perhaps, a roadmap to being more sustainable,” she said.

She then went on to discuss the company’s exciting collaboration with Washington University, speaking on how the school’s journey to greater social equity includes becoming a leader in their carbon reduction.
