A study model for a low carbon footprint redevelopment of the Javits area, in the Far West Side of Manhattan.
It features a thorough mixture of uses, with passive solar stepped housing, combined with the other
urban functions, offices, businesses, leisures and services.
pedestrian friendly diagonal grid of lively streets turns all the
dwellings towards the sun, a renewable source of clean and free energy.
