Net Zero Energy Educational Buildings in NY

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

The NYC School Construction Authority will set a new bar for public architecture with NZE buildings - buildings that produce as much energy as they consume. P.S.62, currently under construction on Staten Island and designed by SOM, is set to be completed early next year. Designed to comply with the SCA Green Schools Guide in lieu of LEED certification, P.S. 62 will be the first NZE school in New York City and the Northeast U.S. Bruce Barrett, VP for Architecture and Engineering at the SCA, finds the process of designing such buildings as interesting and valuable as the built result.

On Roosevelt Island, Morphosis is designing the first academic building for the Cornell NYC Tech Campus that will also comply with NZE Guidelines. The New Yorker asks: "Can photovoltaics ever be romantic?" referring to Morphosis' design for the first academic building for the Cornell NYC Tech campus; the author suggests "the answer could be yes".
