Architecture Matters Design Forum: Aesthetics of Green Design
Join hosts Arturo Levenfeld, AIA; Kristopher Barkley, AIA; and Saxon Sigerson, AIA, for a casual evening of discussion centered around the topic of the Aesthetics of Green Design.
Sustainability and "green" design are at the forefront of current architectural trends and thought. Many designs respond to this movement with an aesthetic that speaks directly to an expression of sustainability while others achieve the goals of green design without bowing to the fashion of green.
Do all green buildings need to be expressive of their sustainability to be considered successful green designs or are they inherently less aesthetic if they look green? Are the goals of sustainability and aesthetic success mutually exclusive? Our open forum discussion is intended to explore these questions and others in our continuing Architecture Matters series.
