the shape of the build­ing has been op­ti­mized for tak­ing ad­van­tage of pas­sive so­lar en­ergy and day­light, and has been de­signed to be re­spon­sive to chang­ing weather con­di­tions. low-car­bon tech­nolo­gies such as dis­trict heat­ing and nat­ural ther­mal en­ergy have also been key el­e­ments of the sus­tain­abil­ity strat­egy.
