This study investigates the implications of the New York Times Building aesthetic vision in respect to its sustainability goals; namely: to enhance the NYT work environment through the effective management of daylight, offsetting the building’s lighting and cooling energy demands. The study focuses on the role of the ceramic rod façade and concentrates on its implications on the building’s energy demands. The study makes a case for aesthetics informing the building’s sustainability goals and pushing for innovative solutions to sustainable architecture.
