CEU's for this course:
 

Green building means paying attention to climate data and local weather patterns in design - but what happens when the data driving the design might change?  

Designing buildings to effectively meet the conditions and realities of a Post Carbon, Climate-Changed world may require a shift in our current understanding of what constitutes good building design and sound building practice. Long term, climate appropriate buildings will require more resilient design than currently reflected in today's design standards.   

Our conversation will explore what this might mean for buildings truly built for the next 100 years.
