July 13, 6:30-8:00 PM, Architecture Auditorium - FREE and open to the public

Join us for the first of four Sakamaki Extraordinary Lectures! Thoughtful design of buildings and landscapes can dramatically impact how we consume fossil fuel energy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as well as reduce potable water consumption, which is becoming increasingly limited in quality and quantity. The speakers will discuss their personal experience designing exemplary buildings as well as landscapes that serve as water infrastructure systems showcasing ecosystem services and triple bottom-line benefits. In addition, they will discuss adaptive measures of 21st century design for buildings and their sites to manage the effects of climate change including both sea level rise and changes in weather patterns.
