Midtown Market Energy Observations
Energy can be defined in many ways at the Midtown Global Market. There are the traditional forms of energy, such as heat and electricity, that are intergrated into the "industrial" design of the market area and are on display overhead for all to see and experience. This decision to display the heating ducts, water pipes, and electrical pipes, I feel makes the shopper more intimate with the exchange of energy throughout the Global Market area.
Also, the energy brought in by the human element is very prevelant. People from many different ethnic and social backgrounds are all interacting with eachother and the flow created by the large walkways helps to avoid any sort of halt in the exchange of energy.
