Green architecture is now everywhere, which is a mere indication that saving the environment is getting the attention of the world. In the Philippines, one of the countries in South East Asia, Chad Oppenheim is selected to design the country’s first green building. Built under the country’s own green building rating system called BERDE or the Building for Ecologically Responsive Design Excellence, the Net Lima is just one of the three towers that are under construction at the Net Metropolis. The building features a façade that serves as sunshade and glass curtain that minimizes solar heat gain. On the other hand, the façade also gives the building occupants to optimize natural light, thus minimizing the use of electricity during daytime.
Saving on your energy usage can be done in so many ways. You can opt for a solar powered gadgets, use a mini windmill, and a lot more. With the Conserve Insight, users are given the chance to save on their energy usage through monitoring. The Conserve Insight is an energy use monitor where users can monitor his or her carbon dioxide produced, energy consumed, and the watts used in real time. In this way, users can easily have an idea with their energy usage already and thus they will now be able to have control on their daily usage, thus allowing them to not only save some huge amount of money but also, for them to now help save the environment without compromising their luxurious lifestyle.
Disused or unused structure must not be wrecked instead should be repurposed just like the Low Line Underground Park that make use of the disused Lower East Side trolly terminal.
Architect James Ramsey is the one who is responsible for the Low Line Underground Park along with Dan Barasch and R. Boykin Curry IV. Fiber optic powered remote skylights will light the park making it a well-illuminated underground park. Through this project, architects will surely be inspired of repurposing old structures instead of totally wrecking it and discard the debris, which will surely add to our landfills. Looking at the photos, the Low Line Underground Park is a lovely and rejuvenating place to stay.
