Join us as we kick off our Inspire Lecture Series with speaker Ed Mazria, as he presents: The Next Built Environment, Today.
The warming of the earth’s atmosphere caused by burning fossil fuels; the development of tar sands, shale oil and gas reserves; current environmental calamities; and the long recession are converging to create the greatest crisis and opportunity of modern times. As these events intensify, they will dramatically change how we live, build and relate to the natural environment.
Architecture 2030 founder Edward Mazria will deliver an eye-opening presentation illustrating the powerful role of the Building Sector in both creating and alleviating many of the crises facing America and the world today.
