Embodied Energy Pilot Project @ Ideas City

Prof Meggers provided some informal insights and direction to David Benjamin in this project that was presented at the IDEAS CITY event at the New Museum in New York City


The Embodied Energy Pilot Project—led by Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP) and Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope®, and operating out of the GSAPP Incubator at NEW INC—aims to uncover key questions, issues, and opportunities for architectural design in the context of embodied energy.

This exhibition for IDEAS CITY will feature two large drawings for the glass facade of the New Museum: a zoomed-out embodied energy map of New York City buildings, and a zoomed-in embodied energy view of the intersection of the Bowery and Houston Street.
