The Global Emergency Teach-In web cast held Feb. 20 will be available online on Feb. 23 at
Having already seen Ed Mazria speak at UNLV School of Architecture last fall, as part of the Klai Juba lecture series, I confess I was hoping for more than statistics and what is -- for those that have attended the lecture, explored the Architecture 2030 web site http://architecture2030.org/
and embraced the 2010 Imperative initiative http://www.2010imperative.org/
-- a fairly standard message.
Speaker Chris Luebkeman of ARUP did mention three ARUP projects that will be of interest:
Dongtan Eco-city http://www.arup.com/eastasia/project.cfm?pageid=7047
, Beddington Zero Energy Development in London http://www.arup.com/feature.cfm?pageid=5844
, and The Gap Headquarters Builidng in San Bruno California http://www.savingsbydesign.com/awards-2000/2000awards.html#gap
The Panel Discussion in the afternoon in the Architecture Studies Library was lively and informative. It was taped curtesy of Randy Hale, and will soon be available for viewing in the Architecture Studies Library. Speakers are listed on the ASL web site at http://www.library.unlv.edu/arch/events/2007_2010teachin.html
The Panel was organized and moderated by NEAT Lab Director Alfredo Fernandez-Gonzalez. The NEAT Lab has produced 2030 Challenge- Environmental Design in the Face of Climate Change
DVD which will soon go to all NAAB accredited architecture schools. The DVD was developed by the NEAT Laboratory to increase the environmental literacy of students, faculty, and practicing professionals in the architecture, planning, and design communities. The NEAT Lab web site http://www.unlv.edu/labs/neatl/
has other tools of interest.
Several challenges or suggestions for how to proceed to bring the UNLV Campus to carbon neutral. More on this in a separate posting.
