The new research building in Stuttgart is designed on a grid for a highly flexible workplace that serves as a dynamic framework for ongoing research activities. The Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research comprises offices, laboratories, meeting and conference facilities.

“The grid structure of the research centre ensures a high degree of mobility and freedom to change and expand the building”, explains Design Director Louis Becker, Henning Larsen Architects. “The building has a rational design and is organised in modules.

New York's 1st Net Zero Energy School

New York's 1st Net Zero Energy School | Cultura de massa no Século XXI (Mass Culture in the XXI Century) | Scoop.it

The first net zero energy school in New York State broke ground today; the school, located on a 3.5-acre site in Richmond, Staten Island, will be a 444-seat primary school.


Roger Duffy, FAIA, SOM Design Partner and head of the firm’s Education Lab called this project, “an extraordinary opportunity to help define the next generation of energy efficient school buildings for New York City and beyond.”
Bruce Barrett, Vice President of Architecture & Engineering described the intentions for this project: Using this unique project as a vehicle, the SCA (New York City School Construction Authority) will explore new and higher levels of sustainability by embarking on the construction of a Net Zero Energy School Building. Recognizing Mayor Bloomberg’s and New York City’s commitment to sustainability in general, and to energy conservation specifically, we have challenged ourselves to go beyond building code and design standards to realize innovative energy and carbon reductions exceeding our current achievements. We want to push the envelope on this advanced green project, which will be our ‘sustainability lab.’

Forbes is one of the few media paying attention to this interesting new report on offshore and Arctic drilling for oil and gas.
