Doug Jackson’s Uneasy Green building makes use of renewable technologies to realign its users with the rhythms of nature. The design is a parasitic addition to an existing skyscraper on Wilshire Boulevard, and is cantilevered on the building’s roof. Its display panels are illustrated by an anime-style comic, where two doves narrate the building’s features to a naïve cartoon girl. The building’s sunscreen is made of flexible solar panels that react to sunlight and wind, creating a constant change of view and power production that takes direct cues from the weather.
To see all the designs in person, check out the A+D museum in Los Angeles before SOUPERgreen ends on the 14th of April.
