HSBS Green Building
HSBS has a nice green-looking building in the City of London. I was intrigued by the shades and semi-transparent envelope, and imagined it also had some water recycling scheme inside. Asked several of the building's occupants how the thing worked. No one had any idea what I was talking about. For them, it was just a regular office building. Maybe the building was working so well that no one noticed anything special. Maybe the "green" additions were not in use and served only as decoration (and another demonstration that the bank has a profound connection to the Good Mother Earth). Anyway, I liked the look of the building. It is a pity there is some brochure about the concept and some technical aspects.
