“Edge Sustainability: The Future of Architecture in a Changing Climate” will focus on the ways in which the practice and teaching of architecture will undergo a paradigm shift to properly respond to the changing climate and the ambitious local 80×50 goals set by Mayor De Blasio to mitigate it. Four themes will be addressed: Education, Mandates & Policy, Branding & Visioning, and Owner Interests.   This event was preceded by a roundtable discussion with top leaders in Sustainability. This is the second in a series of events related to the presidential theme of Tomas Rossant, AIA, “Dialogues from the Edge of Practice.” The theme intends to explore how architects are boldly enlarging the purview of the practitioner to bring their particular critical problem solving skills and design acumen to endeavors previously considered outside the traditional scope of practice.   Speakers: David Bomke, Assistant Vice President of Operations, The Fulcrum Group; Vice President, New York Energy Consumers Council, Inc. William Braham, FAIA, Director of Masters of Environmental Building and Design, University of Pennsylvania Lance Hosey, FAIA, LEED AP, Chief Sustainability Officer, RTKL Nilda Mesa, Director, NYC Mayor’s Office of Sustainability   Moderator: Tomas Rossant, AIA, 2015 AIANY President   Price: Free for AIA members and students; $10 for non-members.   Attendees are encouraged to submit a question in advance through the registration page. Organized by: AIANY Committee on the Environment (COTE) and Urban Green Council with additional support from the conEdison Green Team.
