The Science of Building Green: Materials, Energy, and Health
The Science of Building Green:  Materials, Energy, and Health

March 16, 2010, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
AIA San Francisco 130 Sutter Street, 6th Floor

Co-Sponsored by the Ecological Building Network

Architects, Designers, and Builders face an enormous array of decisions.  Yet most of these are based on incomplete information about the physics that will actually happen to the building.  On March 16 join a panel of experts for a presentation and in-depth discussion of what is really going on in our buildings - how energy flows, how buildings fail (and how to avoid that), and how they can contribute or injure human well-being and the health of our environment.

The discussion will be led by John F. Straube, Ph.D., P.Eng.  John is a specialist building science engineer who has been deeply involved in the areas of building enclosure design, moisture physics, and whole building performance as a consultant, researcher, and educator.

He is also a faculty member in the Department of Civil Engineering and the School of Architecture at the University of Waterloo where he teaches courses in structural design, material science and building science to both disciplines. Energy-efficient, healthy, durable and sustainable building designs are a general goal of his research which is often supported by advanced computer simulation, laboratory testing and full-scale natural exposure performance monitoring.

Additional Panelists:
Bruce King, Ecological Building Network
Bruce is a structural engineer and founder and director of the Non-Profit Ecological Building Network (  He consults on structural engineering as well as green building materials.  He and his wife Sara also run Green Building Press, which recently published "Energy Free:  Homes for a Small Planet".  He is the author of "Buildings of Earth and Straw", "Design of Straw Bale Buildings", and "Making Better Concrete" as well as numerous articles and papers.  He also advises Green Building Advisor, Serious Materials, and CalStar Cement.

Other Panelists to be named.
