GAF x COTE: Looking at the Future
This 2019 video was compiled by GAF, a COTE sponsor.
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.https://www.fastcompany.com/90247244/this-buildings-giant-sundial-shows-how-much-energy-its-making
