Sixteen: How Narrative Gave a Second Life to this Abandoned Neighborhood

Sixteen is a provocation that uses fictional narrative to guide the design process. As it applies to architecture, narrative prioritizes the human experience. It can be utilized and applied to the built environment in many different forms — but always in an experiential and emotional dimension that justifies an idea, spatial sequence, and form. It transcends daylight studies, space planning, and other data-driven findings — and transforms quantified space into place. The built environment is an expression of narrative itself that encourages its occupants to continue the story.

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.

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.
