Project Summary

Client: CASE

Business Unit: Software

BLDG 2.0 is a research project initiated by CASE, in partnership with New Buildings Institute, Arup Sustainability, SHoP Architects, Columbia University and IDEO. Inspired by the principles of mass collaboration and collective intelligence, BLDG 2.0 seeks to fill the void between design intent and verified building performance by providing an open-source analytical interface to building performance databases, a collaborative community of experts, and an online marketplace for ideas emphasizing building energy performance and open innovation. As an ever-evolving and improving collaborative infrastructure, BLDG 2.0 will provide a foundation for a more effective and adaptive community of design professionals dedicated to a sustainable built environment.
