BNIM at Greenbuild 2015: Blue is the New Green

Steve McDowell, Director of Design for BNIM, will speak about the growing complexity of water issues for architects, planners, and engineers. The panel of distinguished presenters will explore water infrastructure through case studies of current projects and policy. McDowell will use several BNIM projects to discuss the significance of water in reshaping how we think about design: the Omega Center for Sustainable Living in Rhinebeck, NY; Odum School of Ecology in Athens, GA; and BNIM's proposed headquarters in Kansas City, 1640 Baltimore. Water is the next currency and "blue" will replace "green" in our future discussions about sustainability.

BNIM at SxSW Eco

Urban Planner Josh Boehm will make a  presentation at SxSW Eco on October 6. He will illustrate some of the emerging innovations of Kansas City’s Smart + Connected City initiative. Kansas City’s Smart City infrastructure will accompany the City’s nearly complete 2.2-mile downtown streetcar route, and will be the largest network in North America. While built by a public-private partnership between the City, Cisco, and Sprint, the Smart City project is built on a foundation of openness, with opportunities for other collaborators to find entrepreneurial uses of Smart City data.
