Who we are

In April 2019, COD was in San Francisco for it's annual domestic conference. Check out the conference resources and the pictures!

    There's a lot to quibble with about this piece including, 1) the fact that the building's architect, which I believe is EwingCole, is not mentioned at all; and 2) a building is not "making" or producing energy, it is harvesting it.

    But the piece is about a sundial at a corporate headquarters ... it's a very interesting building feature that, ultimately, is meant to help the building communicate to its users about its performance. Cool.
