Edward Mazria AIA
Architect and Founder of Architecture 2030
Climate change is real and imminent — and this environmental concern is making waves in the building industry. Architect Edward Mazria AIA, author of The Passive Solar Energy Book and founder of Architecture 2030, is leading the call for change with the 2030 Challenge, a measured strategy to dramatically reduce global greenhouse gas emissions. Perhaps our most significant opportunity as a creative community, climate change calls for an evolution in thought, in design and in construction. In addition to the keynote, explore products and services at the Energy Pavilion on the tradeshow floor and learn something new in one of dozens of energy-focused workshops.
