The New York Center for Sustainable Energy, the first fully sustainable education center has been created in Brooklyn Bridge Park of New York City! The off-grid complex was donated by the Beautiful Earth Group and designed by Gensler.
Although this building currently holds dozens of programs and workshops on green-education, itsÂ significance is deeper than educational purposes. This spacious model, fully powered by solar panelling, contains a charging station for electric vehicles and is easily replicable.
Comprised primarily of commonly found recyclable materials, this building is also a low-cost project. Most people consider “going green” as an expensive option that is only available at a high premium so the underlying objective for the NYCSE is to break down the current myths about what it takes to “Go Green”.
