MidCentury (un)Modern: An Environmental Analysis of the Manhattan Office Building

Wednesday, Jul 10, 2013

Consider the retrofit potential of single glazed commercial office buildings in Manhattan constructed between the late 1950's and mid-1970's. A new study focuses the architectural and economic challenges to effectively retrofitting this building typology and often overlooked questions of embodied energy. It raises the provocative question: Is it more sustainable to retrofit or to demolish and rebuild these buildings?

Presenter: Bill Browning - Terrapin Bright Green

Respondents: Theodore H.M. Prudon, PhD, FAIA & Nico Kienzl, DDES, LEED AP BD+C, ASHRAE HBDP - Atelier Ten
