A Passive Future for NYC

Skateboarding India, poems on Mars, 3D-printed ears and more in our look at the web this week

Showing the impressive results of passive building techniques, Sam
McAfee of SG Build took a thermal image this past January of
NYC’s first certified passive home. Bright reds, oranges and yellows
consume all neighboring homes, showing heat loss due to poorly
insulated materials The town home at 23 Park Place however, remains a
cool blue in contrast.
