Jason McLennan — Living Buildings: The Future of Architecture
Introduced by Bryony Schwan, former Executive Director of the Biomimicry Institute.
This leading figure in the global green architecture movement challenges us to imagine and demand buildings that operate as elegantly and efficiently as the living structures nature creates. as Ceo of Cascadia Green building Council, author of the living building challenge and co-creator of pharos (the most advanced building material rating system in North America), he shows breathtaking examples from the worldwide challenge underway to design buildings that meet or exceed nature’s ecosystem services.
This speech was presented at the 2009 Bioneers National Conference.
