AIA Las Vegas October Membership Meeting  "Ed Mazria, FAIA - Climate Change - What Architects Can And Must Do"


Climate Change is everyone’s crisis, and architects are uniquely positioned to help solve it.  So what are architects doing now to combat Climate Change?   Buildings generate nearly 40% of annual global GHG emissions. By 2060 the global building stock is expected to double in area.  This is the entire building square footage that exists right now.  It is like building 35 New York Cities every day for the next 15 years. And, nearly two-thirds of the existing building area that exists today will still exist in 2050.  Any transition to low carbon/carbon neutral built environment must address both new construction and existing buildings. The decisions we make as architects and designers play an enormous role and have an incredible impact on Climate Change.   So, what are architects doing now to combat Climate Change?

As the highlight of our year-long 2020 focus on Climate Change, we are honored to have Ed Mazria, FAIA, Hon. FRIC, Founder and CEO of Architecture 2030 share the plans and actions that architects need to take to combat Climate Change. Learn what architects CAN DO….and MUST DO in order to meet the Climate Change deadline.   

Ed Mazria, FAIA is an internationally recognized architect, author, research and educator.  Over the past decade, his seminal research into the sustainability, resilience, energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions of the built environment has redefined the role of architecture, planning, design and building, in reshaping our world.  He is the founder of Architecture 2030, a think tank developing real-world solutions for 21st century problems, and host of the AIA+2030 Professional Educational Series and inspiration for the 2030 Districts movement in North American cities.
