Using dynamic art, energy dashboards and building information systems to inspire energy savings from occupants and owners.

Since the first versions of LEED, architects have been using signage and displays to educate and inspire building occupants to save energy and water.  It was based on a simple idea: educate people on ways to reduce energy and water use, and they will be more likely to do so.  While this is true, and most of the first installations were very educational, the design of many of these displays tended to be technical, wordy and easy to ignore.
