SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA This project is a test-bed for new technologies which will invigorate the public realm. A Living Machine® recycles blackwater, in addition to other systems that harvest and recycle greywater, photovoltaics and wind turbines. Advanced technology makes daylight management a science thanks to facade-specific, timebased interior window shades, and exterior blinds that respond to the sun. The building generates over 7% of its own energy through photovoltaics, wind turbines and reduction of energy needs through enhanced envelope and mechanical systems design making the PUC building one of the most sustainable urban office buildings in North America.
