While based in the UAE for the past few years, I've consulted on such projects as MASDAR City and ADNOC HQ. I've also been developing ideas around less-than-zero-impact (or positive-impact) buildings that double as a renewable energy power-plants, and I've been fortunate to have some of those projects featured in Popular Science magazine and other print media.
I'm also Co-Founder of the Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI). LAGI is a worldwide public arts initiative that offers the opportunity for collaborative teams of artists, architects, landscape architects and designers, working with engineers and scientists, to create new ways of thinking about what renewable energy generation looks like. The LAGI project calls on design teams to conceive of large-scale public artworks for specific sites that, in addition to their conceptual beauty, also have the ability to harness clean renewable energy from nature, convert the energy to electrical power, and distribute the power to the utility grid of the city. The project has received featured articles in numerous local and international press outlets, including The New York Times and Dwell Magazine.
