On December 2, 2014, Architizer recognized William McDonough + Partners’ work on the NASA Sustainability Base as one of seven Intelligent Buildings that demonstrate the success of digitally drive design. Inside the unique crescent shaped building there is special control technology just like that of a spacecraft. The technology provides real-time data about the airflow throughout the entire building. Along with this unique technology the building was also designed with a Cradle to Cradle® approach and is made with salvaged, renewable, recycled, and recyclable materials.
The NASA Sustainability Base was mentioned alongside other buildings such as Hong Kong’s first zero-carbon building, Duke Energy Center, Bahrain World Trade Center, and the Pacific Controls Building in Dubai.
