Your finished product will need to be a google presentation that contains the work you have done with the floor plan, drawing and research.
The google presentation will need to explain how your building is self-sustaining and eco friendly. It will need to convince the reader that you have a structure and business that is good for the community and a place that they should invest time in seeing and/or using.
You have to “sell” your project to the audience so be convincing! Make it sound as awesome and interesting as you can!!
