The Ultra-Ex Studio: Redesigning 'Urban Green' | green streets |

The Product of the long term collaboration with the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning (GSAPP) and Preservation and the Fu School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS), this studio accepted the design challenges of the next "Urban Green”wave in the United States, with emphasis on the specificities of neighborhood and building constellations.

The studio explored new categories of micro-scale "infrastructures" combined to form a new design lexicon in accomplishing 50% less waste production; 50% less energy use; 50% less water consumption. Analyses were developed for neighborhoods within Manhattan surrounding the Columbia University Morningside and Medical School complexes.
