Even if carbon emission has to reduce, the use of energy increases. High rise is the only answer. A solution combining housing and energy systems for a sustainable living starts to be built in various parts of the city.

The Head in the Clouds Pavilion on New York City’s Governors Island comes out of the desire to create a ‘place to dream in the city of dreams’. Made from 53,780 recycled plastic bottles – the amount, thrown away in New York City in 1 hour – it is a space where visitors can enter into and contemplate the light and color filtering through the ‘cloud’ from the inside, out.

The new offices of the Paris based digital photo retouching studio B’Pong were designed to help launch their presence in New York City. The entry space and central conference area are wrapped in stacked homasote, to create a sense of mass and weight, a counterpoint to the light coming from skylights above. The workspace beyond is accessed through a door in the mass and reveals glowing workstations. These are encased in corrugated resin and perforated metal screen, creating a moiré effect around the desks.

The Bowery is the street that separates NoLiTa (North of Little Italy) from the Lower East Side.
From the Civil war time until a few years ago, The Bowery was still considered the street of the homeless, the prostitutes and the drug addicts and was known for the flophouses.

The Avant Chelsea, a 40,000-square-foot, twelve-story residential condominium, occupies a tight and challenging site in New York City. The design maximizes the building size allowed within zoning regulations through an unconventional array of setbacks that add bedrooms and exterior terraces to the uppermost four stories. Artful proportioning of a standard window wall system on the street facade balances the scale of the user with that of the building at large.
