Green Building September 12th Luncheon: Connected Design Thinking

The way that we design and construct the built environment is often split apart into what seem to be somewhat unrelated disciplines. There is one big problem with that approach: everything is connected. How do we make sense of the complex ways that the design of the building itself affects the site that it sits on, the social fabric around it and in turn the rest of the world? Join us this month as Leidy Klotz helps us take a step back to see the bigger picture by thinking in “systems”: merging design and behavioral science for a more sustainable and resilient built environment.

Our speaker this month is Leidy Klotz: professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Architecture at the University of Virginia focusing on how connected design thinking creates a healthier, resilient and socially equitable built environment. He has recently published the engaging book: “Sustainability through Soccer: An Unexpected Approach to Saving Our World”
