The Sustainable Design Lab will be presenting two interactive tools for the exploration of neighborhood energy performance. The first, Mapdwell, is an award-winning website that provides a map of the solar power potential for every building in Cambridge, allowing users to see where solar panels would be the most effective. The second is an interactive neighborhood design environment that lets you design a new neighborhood with Lego blocks and see its energy consumption, daylight availability, and walkability colorized on the blocks in real time.
