AS+GG’s new #ebook RESIDENSITY: A CARBON ANALYSIS OF RESIDENTIAL TYPOLOGIES, is now out on our new publishing platform ASGGe. The book was first conceived in 2012 as an internal study that asked several #density related questions: What if we could build a mile high? What would it be like to live there? How much #energy would it take to #build such a building and where would the energy come from? What drives people to think about building higher and more importantly, is it even the right thing to do? Alternatively, why do some people live in #houses in the #suburbs ? How do their choices of habitat impact the #environment ? The book analyzes nine building #typologies , designed by AS+GG, to develop a deeper understanding of the relationships between different building densities and the amount of land and infrastructure required to support them. The book investigates how much #carbon – both embodied and consumed – is used in each #typology and how it affects density and open space from the viewpoint of #sustainability , carbon emissions, and carbon sequestration. To purchase or preview the book, see link in bio! #Incredible #vertical cover #photograph of #NYC by Andrew Griffiths at @lensaloft #architecturalphotography #architecture #residential #megatall #supertall #highrise #midrise #lowrise #singlefamily

We can’t stop watching this short clip of the #dynamic #façade on the AS+GG designed Energy Hall in #Astana The colors subtly shift while reflecting in the polished stone floor. The skin was designed as an animated membrane that can be viewed from the street and remain active even when the theater is not open. @expo2017astana #activefacade #futureenergy #energyhall #expo2017 #astana #kazakhstan #astanaexpo #internationalarchitecture #cultural #culturalarchitecture #theatrical #asgg #smithgill #adriansmith #gordongill

AS+GG’s FKI Tower has an #innovative exterior wall that features a building integrated photovoltaic system that can generate enough energy to power 274 households for an entire year and reduces carbon dioxide emissions by 394 tons per year. The accordion shaped exterior is at once #beautiful and #functional Operable windows also allow for outside fresh air, a rare commodity in buildings of this height and size. @thorntontomasetti #bipv #rooftopgarden #seoul #fkitower #internationalarchitecture #asgg #smithgill #adriansmith #gordongill

#dreamy new construction photo of Wuhan Greenland Center by #YuChenghu in China. The highly reflective exterior wall accentuates the building’s aerodynamic features like the gentle tapering of the tower seen here. #wuhan #china #chinesearchitecture #facade #internationalarchitecture #passivedesign #architecture #highrise #supertall #megatall #asgg #smithgill #adriansmith #gordongill

The operable windows on this mixed-use project in Shenzhen's Nanshan District will provide tenants with fresh air, reduce energy costs, and increase the efficiency of the maintenance of the exterior façade. Currently nicknamed High Tech Park, the project will be completed in 2018. #nowunderconstruction #shenzhen #hightechpark #chinesearchitecture #internationalarchitecture #operablewindows #hightechlowtech #passivedesign #asgg #smithgill
