Sustainability Base is a NASA Ames project to create a supportive and nurturing workspace for employees. The project includes a high-performance building that will be a proof-of-concept of what can be accomplished today, as well as a living experimental platform, designed to incorporate new, energy-efficient technologies as they evolve. With NASA innovations and intelligence integrated throughout, the project represents sustainability done as only NASA can.

The building will be highly intelligent, even intuitive. It will be designed to anticipate and react to changes in sunlight, temperature, wind, and usage and will be able to optimize its performance automatically, in real time, in response to internal and external change. › View Video Now
