Description

SOUPERgreen! features projects and essays that offer a long overdue critique of the current approach to green architecture and, in turn, demonstrate a more appropriate way for architects to address the challenges posed by the environmental crisis. In sharp contrast to contemporary examples of green or sustainable architecture which primarily rely upon the invisible agency of unremarkable technologies and materials to reduce resource consumption, but which do so without producing a necessary shift in the public s perception of the environment or behavior towards it SOUPERgreen! demonstrates how green technology can not only perform from a measurable standpoint, but can also produce engaging experiences that profoundly alter, enhance, and transform the public s understanding of the environment. By leveraging the inherently expressive nature of technology in order to dramatize the constantly negotiated relationship between humanity and the natural world, the souped-up green architecture featured in SOUPERgreen! transforms greenness from a mere measurement of environmental performance into an actively engaged and highly conscious lived reality resulting in a new way of experiencing and understanding the environment that is inherently more ecological. With contributions of: Doug Jackson, Wes Jones, Sanford Kwinter, Marc Neveu, Aryan Crawford Omar, Steven Purvis, Randolph Ruiz, Mohamed Sharif, SCI-Arc + Caltech.
