Reimagining the Metropolis: New York's High Performance Building Revolution

Thursday, Oct 28, 2010

Join us to take a wide-angle view of what has been achieved, what's been learned and what's next for New York City's revolution in high performance building. Five years ago we looked at a dawning revolution in high performance building and public awareness. Now, with a track record of completed projects and performance records, it is time to reflect and move forward.

Over the span of four panels, the experienced the experts and the visionaries will delve into what it takes to make high performance buildings New York's new normal. No one says it's easy, everyone agrees that it is essential.

Our first panel will paint the big picture with the insights of policy makers, developers and advocates who will explore what has been accomplished since 2005 and what to expect next. The next panel will zoom in on public policy developments, private sector innovation and how they intersect. The third panel will delve into the nitty-gritty of financial and legal developments in the green building arena and the fourth panel, co-sponsored by the Green Building Committee at the New York Academy of Sciences will look to the future of LEED and other high performance building rating systems.

This series, starting on October 28, 2010 and running through April 19, 2011 is a project of the Pratt Institute, the Sallan Foundation, and Terrapin Bright Green.
