CALL WALK & FORUM // Heat Mapping in Chinatown

Heat Loss and Retention in Rent-controlled Buildings in Chinatown

June 20, 2018
WALKS: Mott street and surrounds. FORUM: Silk Road Café

Architect Joyce Hwang and environmental engineer Prathap Ramamurthy used heat imaging technology to decode environmental conditions such as heat loss and retention in rent-controlled buildings in Chinatown. The walk was followed by a forum with community, activists about the challenges and promise of Community Land Trusts to preserve low-cost housing and to reflect on how the arts could be a catalyst to reveal the benefits of strategic renovations to energy conservation and livability.
