Interested in learning more about green building? Mark your calendar and plan to join us on April 15 for a design workshop and dinner event that promises a wealth of information about building with the Earth and environment in mind.

“Designing for the Post-Carbon Economy: It’s Zero or Nothing” will feature keynote speaker, Eric Corey Freed. In this interactive workshop, you will have the chance to explore the concept of living buildings while looking toward a path to achieving Net-Zero in your own projects.

Attending this workshop will help you discover new opportunities to conserve water, reduce energy use, and manage resources through studying Nature’s designs or biomimicry. You can expect to go away with inspiration for your own designs and how they can be modeled after what Nature already has to offer.

Guest speaker Eric Corey Freed, FIGP of organicARCHITECT brings his 20 years of green building experience to the workshop. He is considered a leader in his field and his insight is sure to stimulate ideas and dialogue among attendees.

The day’s events will begin with an educational seminar with Eric Corey Freed from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Promenade Building. The seminar will focus on “Intro to Net Zero, Bromidic and Biomimicry in Buildings” and will offer 3 PDH’s, AIA Credits.

On the evening of April 15th, located at the Olmstead, we will have a cocktail hour from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. with dinner and speaker from 6:30 until 8. Plan to attend all of the events and take advantage of the opportunity to network with others in your field in addition to the new inspiration you are sure to go home with.

Mr. Freed will talk about the issues that face us in a post-carbon world and the road ahead for meeting the demands through sustainable building development, without making people within them feel guilty for using them.
