Center for Architecture Exhibition in New York

I passed by the Center for Architecture of New York yesterday evening, and if you are around there, it is worth getting inside for a little tour!

I know this exhibition started over a month ago, so this post may look old, but I thought it was interesting to share it anyway

Even if this blog should be focused mainly on Parametric Architecture, I wanted to post this as I found it quite interesting: the current exhibition focuses on innovation in Architecture, integrating ecological features in the fa├žades of the buildings.
The need of innovation in architecture is evident on many sides: if you consider a solar year, buildings consumes the 40% of the energy produced in the year. (the remaining percentage is shared between transport and production of goods...) And this is considering only the consumption for the maintainance, not the actual building phase.
