A Shared Vision

For over a century, architects, planners, and designers have been taught that they can transform the world. Now we get the chance to do it!
The warming of the earth’s atmosphere caused by burning fossil fuels; the development of tar sands, shale oil and gas reserves; current environmental calamities; and the long recession are converging to create the greatest crisis and opportunity of modern times. As these events intensify, they will dramatically change how we live, build and relate to the natural environment.
Architecture 2030 founder Edward Mazria will deliver an eye-opening presentation illustrating the powerful role of the built environment in both creating and alleviating many of the crises facing America and the world today.
The Changing Role of Architects in the Built Environment

Clark will speak on the changing role of architects in the built environment including thoughts on: data-driven, climate responsive design, ‘outcome based’ codes (and clients), reprioritizing human health as a key project parameter, and the scalar impact of projects ‘bigger than a building’ networked in districts. These leading edge issues are just coming to the forefront today, but are trending strongly to becoming the nature of the profession in years to come.
