Make this megamansion go green
Re “Millions owed on mansion,” June 3
Los Angeles has an opportunity to demonstrate sustainable architecture features in home design. The case study for this should be the unfinished mansion in Bel-Air built wildly out of city code compliance by developer Mohamed Hadid.
Doing this can satisfy the issues at hand without further waste by recycling a mega mansion into a net-zero-energy showcase. Illegally expanded spaces can be repurposed to become machines of solar collection. The built mass as a whole can be softened and cloaked by functional green walls, cleaning the air and blending the home back into the hillside. John Maloney
