The 2030 Challenge: 19 years and ticking
The AIA has called for a commitment from architectural firms to design carbon-neutral buildings by the year 2030. Eleven years into this bold challenge, what are firms doing today to progress toward the goal, and what does the future of building energy look like? On Tuesday, February 1, 2014 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, the Boston Society of Architects (BSA) Committee on the Environment (COTE) hosts a roundtable discussion at Wentworth Institute of Technology’s Watson Hall (550 Huntington Avenue, Boston) with leading architects working on a broad range of sustainable projects. We’ll look at real-world strategies; case studies; challenges; and opportunities related to team selection, design and implementation. This is part one of a dialogue focusing on how architects are making meaningful change. Part two will involve engineers, owners, project managers, renewable-energy experts and other stakeholders.
The discussion is free and open to BSA members and the public. Space is limited. Parking is also limited. Why not use public transportation?Co-moderators Philippe Généreux AIA, LEED AP (SMMA/Symmes Maini & McKee Associates)
