In this 75-minute course filmed live at the AIA Los Angeles & AIA|LA COTE 2020 Two Degrees Symposium, three presenters share insights on the design of healthy, low intensity buildings that meet or exceed the goals set forth in the Green New Deal.
In “Adaptive Reuse,” William Leddy, FAIA, provides insights into why adaptive building reuse reduces both embodied operational carbon and why it is imperative in a climate-positive world. He then suggests tangible strategies for design professionals to promote adaptive reuse.
In “Building to Cool the Climate,” Bruce King, Founder and Director of the Ecological Building Network (EBNet) provides strategies for pulling carbon out of the atmosphere and sequestering it within foundations, walls, roofs and insulation, and inspires us to transform buildings from massive carbon emitters into carbon sponges.
In “Aligning Climate and Health Goals,” Bill Walsh, Founder and Board President, Healthy Building Network, discusses why reducing embodied carbon is essential to meeting our climate change goals and why this demands a revolution in how we specify and manufacture building materials.
