green community exhibit


at the national building museum in washington dc a very interesting exhibition takes place. one great idea is you can touch or walk to learn about sustainable choices.

green community explores the origins of our precarious ecological situation and introduces communities large and small where citizens, political leaders, planning and design professionals, developers, and government agencies are working together for a more sustainable future.”

i wish i could go there and play with the interactive walls and take a run over the interactive hallway. the installations were created by design and technology firm portion.

“we charged potion with a seemingly impossible task:  show our visitors how the entire world is interconnected. we wanted visitors to be able to layer information, change their perspective, and be provoked into thinking about the impact of their own decisions. the result, both elegant and informative, is almost hypnotic, slowing down the visitors and preparing them to reflect.”
