Austin Energy Green Building Program

In creating a new headquarters for the Austin Energy Green Building Program in the Mueller neighborhood, the building needed to be pedagogical and set a precedent for the future of green building. It is no longer good enough to be "sustainable," more efficient and less bad; buildings must become regenerative, living, breathing organisms that are diverse and produce more than they consume. They must collect solar energy, sequester carbon, reuse water; they must be dynamic and responsive, beautiful and full of light, and should use mass customization and computational, parametric design to create more human-scaled and organic spaces, instead of only right-angled spaces built in the past for economy and lack of technology to do otherwise.
