There’s a plot of land on 18th Street and Broadway Boulevard in Kansas City. In time, the owner intends to use it for something commercial or residential, but, in the mean time, 360 Architecture helped transform the land with an interim solution. 18Broadway is now a demonstration of storm water management, urban agriculture, and energy independence on one city block.
Plumen 001 has been shooting around the internet today (i.e., Good, Morin, Re-Nest). The designer CFL saves 80% on energy bills and lasts eight times longer than a regular incandescent. It’s an 11-watt bulb that outputs 680 lumens with a color temperature of 2700k. But it’s not available in the US until next year, and Plumen 002 is in the works. In any event, Plumen seems perfect for the exposed lighting situation pictured here.
