At Dwell on Design New York, we'll examine various case studies—from Passive Houses to large-scale green roofs, like the one on New York's Javits Center—as a way to discuss how we can make the built environment of New York City more efficient, sustainable, and resilient. 

The green roof on Javits Center, designed by FXFOWLE, is the second largest green roof in the country.

Three New York–based architects—Julie Torres Moskovitz of Fete Nature Architecture, John Gulliford of SHoP, and Dan Piselli of FXFOWLE—will discuss what it will take to introduce green design on a mass scale across the city. Join the conversation on Sunday, October 4, at 11 a.m. at Skylight Clarkson Sq.

The green roof on New York’s Javits Center, designed by FXFOWLE, is the second-largest green roof in the country. The green roof prevents approximately 6.8 million gallons of stormwater run-off annually.
