Brussels Days in New York 2018
What On Earth Is The IceBox Challenge?
The IceBox Challenge kicked off on April 21st during Car Free Earth Day.
This public science demonstration invites the public (us) to discover the benefits of high-performance buildings by revealing how Passive House building design and construction can help NYC meet its climate challenge goals.
Two sheds, two tons of ice. One ton of ice sits in a shed that meets NYC building codes, while the other ton sits across from it in a Passive House Standard shed. The contest — how much ice will still be left in each at 9:00 AM on May 23, 2018? Check out the progress for yourself on 40th and Broadway.
Are you ready to take the Ice Box Challenge? The winning entry will be determined by comparing the sum of each Contestant's guesses for the final weight of the remaining ice in both structures to the actual weight of the remaining ice from the structures at 9:00 AM on Wednesday, May 23rd. Take the #IceBoxChallengeNYC and win some great prizes!

How much longer will it take for an ice block to melt in a Passive House construction than in a typical NYC building? Place your bets to win one of many prizes in the #IceBoxChallengeNYC. @iceboxchallenge https://t.co/drlMScTats— Urban Green Council (@UrbanGreenNY) April 17, 2018
