Greenhouse was a pop-up sustainable restaurant which could be dismantled, recycled or reused. The eatery featured a completely local, organic and seasonal menu, some of which is grown right on the roof of the shipping container and strawbale building. The resto was designed specifically to be a traveling show that could be packed up into shipping containers and includes the building structure, stairs for the rooftop access, kitchen, bathroom, bar, furniture and staff change rooms. A rooftop garden grew some of the herbs and veggies, while cooking oil powers a generator. Strawbales were used to insulate some of the walls and the interior is decorated in writing that explains the zero waste policies of the restaurant.

Alexander Chen's Conductor turns the New York subway system into an interactive string instrument. Using the MTA's actual subway schedule, the piece begins in realtime by spawning trains which departed in the last minute, then continues accelerating through a 24 hour loop. The visuals are based on Massimo Vignelli's 1972 diagram. Chen works for Google Creative Lab.
