IU's Bill Brown presents: “Tomorrow's Building Today”
On Wednesday, October 26 at 6 pm Bill Brown, Director of Sustainability at Indiana University, will present a talk entitled “Tomorrow’s Buildings Today”. By 2030, an area roughly equal to 60 percent of the current total building stock of the world (a staggering 883 billion square feet) will be built or rebuilt to satisfy the demands of a rapidly growing and urbanizing global population. This will require the equivalent of another New York City with all five boroughs every 35 days for the next 15 years. Architects have been challenged to meet this unprecedented demand while also reducing the overall impact of the built environment by designing all buildings to be carbon neutral by 2030. Can it be done? How are we doing? How can you be a part of the 2030 Challenge? Join in the conversation at the October Green Drinks Bloomington.
