Green Office Leadership in NYC

I really enjoyed this 10/31 New York Times article about the LEED platinum rated Cook & Fox office in New York City:
Architects Go Green at the Office

The story highlights several ideas that could be very simple to replicate:

  • Using rows of plants instead of high workstation partitions to provide visual privacy without inhibiting access to daylight

  • Using ground up tires instead of gravel to cover planting soil

  • A composting program for disposing of coffee grounds and other food waste

  • Offering each employee an allowance to purchase a plant and thus play a role in personalizing their space

The ground up tires is a neat idea. I was just at a playground that had that, and it was really cool.
