How to waste energy, New York Style

How to waste energy, New York Style

New York City is such a paragon of green goodness; as I write this, the Mayor is preparing to sue big oil companies for their role in climate change. But nobody seems to be really serious about green building. The latest demonstration of how one can design to waste energy is Thomas Heatherwick's latest condo design that mucks up either side of the High Line in Chelsea. According to Dezeen, Newly released renderings show windows made of glass panels that slant at the top, bottom and sides to create the curved shaped that appears to bulge between the masonry walls – resembling insect eyes. Oh, come on Heatherwick, this is just so dumb. Not only all glass, but ‘bulging’ glass increasing the surface area + full of mullions to further reduce performance.
