EDGE ASSEMBLY SQUARE: SOLAR MAPPING AND FACADE DESIGN
Tamar Warburg introduces the design process behind Edge Assembly Square. Using solar mapping as an integral component of facade design, Sasaki’s team is optimizing facade-mounted building-integrated photovoltaics on each building orientation. The all-electric systems use both PV and geothermal in the fossil fuel free concept design.
Sasaki is an interdisciplinary design firm practicing architecture, planning and landscape architecture. We believe that design has the power to improve the world around us, and that sustainable design requires a future-forward mindset and holistic, integrated solutions to help our clients and communities thrive. Our sustainable design approach helps our educational, civic, corporate and commercial clients meet their climate action goals for reducing carbon emissions, energy use, and water use.
