Architecture: On the Brink

Wednesday, Apr 20, 2011

As part of Earth Week, and to launch AIANY's new educational program on the 2030 Commitment, Ed Mazria will speak at Cooper Union's Great Hall. For over a century, architects, planners and designers have been taught they can transform the world. With the 2030 Challenge and AIA's 2030 Commitment on how to get there, we now have the opportunity to make a tangible difference.

We are at the crossroads of the most significant crisis and the greatest opportunity in modern times. Three profound, world-altering events are converging to create this crisis and opportunity – the warming of the earth’s atmosphere caused by burning fossil fuels, the rapid depletion of global petroleum and natural gas reserves and the current long recession. As these events unfold, and are combined with the increasing frequency of of major environmental disasters, they will dramatically change how we live, build and relate to the natural world.

Organizer: AIANY Committee on the Environment

Sole sponsor: Con Edison Commercial and Industrial Energy Efficiency Program

Speaker: Edward Mazria, Founder and Chief Executive Officer - Architecture 2030, has translated the unfathomable complexities of man-made climate change, today's multifaceted energy issues and the U.S. economy, into actionable issues that relate directly to us all. This presentation illustrates the powerful role of the building sector in both creating and alleviating many of the crises facing America and the world today.
