About the Talk:
This is an illustrated slide lecture that will point out that mainstream architecture, which stressed code compliance, safety, and value for money, became green, with a stress on efficiency and substitution of fossil resources with renewable ones. The speaker shall then go on to explain how green is leading to sustainable (blue) architecture, which includes the concerns of sufficiency, equity, identity, and resilience, not covered by merely green architecture, with visual examples from the speakers’ own experience over the last 40 years in the field.
