The Road to Net Zero

I recently had the privilege to photograph DPR’s Net Zero offices in San Francisco for USGBC+ magazine. First of it’s kind in the city, this beautiful workplace has three green walls, light-sensitive skylights, and colorful, open, modern design.

Net Zero means in the course of one year this 24,000 square foot building should generate MORE power than it needs.

Seems like an excellent precedent.

Picking up where my graduate thesis left off long ago, DPR is one of the first shoots to be included in my new personal project documenting extraordinary efforts in sustainable design. Another featured project will be the Bullit Center in Seattle which is the WORLDS GREENEST COMMERCIAL BUILDING.

…quite amazing…see my previous post.
