Re: NYC Architecture and Development

I was wondering about that glass and steel architecture ban. I thought reflective glass can be really efficient? Reflects direct sun, doesnt absorb heat, cuts way down on lighting. Arent the leed platinum buildings glass? What would he propose precast? I mean concrete can be real good it generally stays a but warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, but I thought new glass tech is a1.

Idk I thought that was kind of weird, but tbh the glass phase has gone on long enough, if we can all wrap up all of our proposals and then move onto something new thatd be great. Idk what it would be, but Id like to see a new material come into the picture as the go to cladding. What do you guys think, or know... it would be?

-I did just read an article today saying hemp concrete can be a sustainable composite concrete that is much stronger and its a waste product of the existing medicinal/legal marijuana market. Thatd be cool with me.
