Forum for on-site building resources at the Anchorage Museum
Transformational Lecture Series – Cascadia Region Green Building Council – www.cascadiagbc.org
DESIGN FOR ON-SITE RESOURCES, with Dr. John Reynolds, Fellow – American Institute of Architects
Anchorage Museum of History and Art, Wednesday, September 16, 2009, 7:30-9:00 pm
Rather than import all of the energy used for a building, on-site resources can make substantial contributions. For more than 40 years John Reynolds has investigated how people use energy in buildings, and how buildings shape that energy usage. He will talk about buildings in many climate zones that reduce imported energy by using sunlight, breeze and ventilation, cooling with nighttime outdoor air, the very cold sky, and temperatures below the ground. The results are beautiful buildings that are a pleasure to use.
Event is free for Cascadia Region Green Building Council members and full-time students, and $10 for non-members. Cascadia members – please remember to bring your passport for free admission!
