Request For Proposals: BTR_Energy Research Project 

Artist Lauren Bon’s Metabolic Studio is looking for a consultant to conduct a three-month research study as part of the Bending the River Back Into the City project. This infrastructure project is in its eighth year of planning and design, phase one of construction started in September 2019. The consultant will work directly with the Bending the River team to study various energy self-sufficiency models. 

The purpose of the study is to look at all potential sustainable energy solutions for the project, the two associated studio sites, and for potential community usage.

The consultant must have experience in hydro power, solar power, and other new emerging green technologies. The candidate should also have a background or deep understanding in design and art. Our approach to this project is to create as little waste with as much benefit as possible, so knowledge of sustainable design practices is a must.
