Building a better environment: An Architecture Matters panel discussion

The recent Architecture Matters article in Soapbox, Building a Better Environment, addressed the impact of the built environment on the climate and efforts undertaken to reduce that impact. To continue the discussion, architects representing a range of work will have an interactive conversation to dive deeper into topics touched on in the article including encouraging sustainability and opportunities for improving what gets built and how it’s done. Questions from the audience will also be addressed throughout the program.

If you’re curious about how to encourage better buildings, this is the program for you. Residents and business owners can influence building code and green incentives in their communities, but only if they understand how to build a better environment. Join us to learn more.
