Margarita Jimeno made this short documentary on architect Old Sondresen who is designing the Kickster HQ on Kent St in Greenpoint. His sustainable design is using 100% reused and recycled materials, then putting an inverted glass box inside of the building in order to create light and a sense of nature in our otherwise “dirty” city. Materials in the construction such as post-recycled denim are so healthy you can eat them, according to Sondreson. With the proposed Greenpoint Landing coming to town, hopefully the new Kickstarter building won’t be an exception but an example of the eco-friendly (and edible!) possibilities for design in North Brooklyn.
