Trust for Public Space
In 1999, the Design Trust and the New York City Department of Design & Construction released the High Performance Building Guidelines, an acclaimed handbook for constructing 'green' municipal buildings.
The successes of this project — and some failures — were documented in this companion publication, which describes a number of pilot projects, compiles comments from participating architects and outlines challenges and goals facing further high-performance implementation.
This report, published three years after the original building guidelines, describes how the recommendations were put into practice on a number of demonstration projects, including the following:
