Presentation by international acclaimed architect and thought leader Ed Mazria. Over the past decade, Ed’s 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.
In 2006, Ed’s “Architecture 2030 Challenge” presentation to a sold out Marjorie Luke Theater united local architects, builders, government leaders and community leaders in establishing Santa Barbara as one of the nation’s leaders in green building. A year later, catalyzed by Ed’s presentation, Santa Barbara City Council approved the Architecture 2030 Energy Ordinance – and adopted at the time one of the most progressive environmental building standards in the country.
Ed’s presentation will touch on Santa Barbara’s past successes and highlight a framework of further actions local cities, planners and governments can enact to phase out carbon dioxide emissions from the built environment in the middle of the century.
