Bruce Fowle believes design should be socially and environmentally responsible. As co-founder and senior principal of Fox & Fowle Architects, he has been instrumental in the construction of numerous sustainable structures, including the Condé Nast Building at 4 Times Square--the first green skyscraper in the U.S. Here, he speaks with Metropolis about Ground Zero’s environmental opportunities: the chance to readdress the site’s density, to explore renewable power sources, and to utilize green roofs. The discussion occurred in January 2004, days before the LMDC released its Draft Generic Environmental Impact Statement (DGEIS) for the WTC Memorial and Redevelopment Plan.
