Join us for a conversation with two leading Biophilic Designers and learn how non-toxic and natural building materials are being used to create Passive House level performance assemblies, the most rigorous in the world, for homes and schools. Our international and local presenter will share their methods and materials in an open discussion and dialog with the audience.

is a Norwegian architect, living in Slovakia, where he has designed and built over 70 Passive House buildings using naturally renewable and locally sourced straw, clay and wood-based materials. His company, Createrra
, helped develop a Cradle to Cradle panelized straw wall system, which he has used in multiple projects across Central and Eastern Europe.
is an author and build/designer from Masonville, where he has recently completed a Passive House Studio|Office|Guest House using a dense-packed cellulose, foam-free envelope. Andrew’s latest book, “[ours] Hyperlocalization of Architecture
,” published by eVolo Press, is a global tour of high performance and sustainable building. It covers Living Building Challenge and Passive House projects from Seattle to Australia to Germany and includes interviews with William McDonough, Edward Mazria and Wolfgang Feist.
