The best new ideas in sustainability are the biggest. AN surveys large-scale green strategies in Orange County's Great Park, investigates the next generation of sustainable skyscrapers in New York, and asks whether the growing number of eco-friendly green roofs carry truly urban-scale benefits.
In Orange County, the car-centric heart of the American dream, New York landscape architect Ken Smith is creating a complex, urban-scale public space that promotes ecological and social sustainability. Jeff Byles explores California's newest and largest public space.
Refining the next generation of green skyscrapers: From 4 Times Square to One Bryant Park, The Durst Organization has profited from a growing awareness of the virtues of green design, along with great strides in energy-efficient technology. Aaron Seward talks to the major players.
Green roofs are easy to love but their urban-scale benefits can be difficult to quantify. Alan G. Brake looks into the current state of vegetated roofs and finds that while public incentives have made them more and more common, more precise tools need to be developed to assess their large-scale impacts.
