First Global Green Event

A lecture/panel series showcasing sustainable planning and design in
the Pacific Northwest and Denmark

Green Architecture and Urban Design Lecture/Panel
Thursday, November 30, 7:00 - 8:30
Kane Hall, Room 110, University of Washington

Don't miss this lecture/panel series with prominent local architects
who will be showing recent urban planning and design work that
exemplifies application of sustainable strategies. The panel will
feature Bert Gregory, CEO of Mithun, to present the firm's urban
design plan for a sustainable neighborhood at Portland's Lloyd
Crossing; Margaret Montgomery, NBBJ, to unveil design strategies for
the new Gates Foundation Campus, influenced by Scandinavian models;
Robert Miller, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, to discuss the new Ballard
Library; and Architect Rob Harrison, who will show his recently
constructed Green Roof Workshop. Diane Sugimura of Seattle's
Department of Planning and Development will recap the the City's
green building program in an introduction to the panel, and Jerry
Finrow, UW Architecture Professor and former College Dean, will
moderate a discussion following the panelists' presentations. The
evening will be a rare opportunity to see projects that represent
cutting-edge sustainable design at four different scales of work.

This is the first in the new GLOBAL GREEN series. The event is
supported by the Northwest Danish Foundation and co-sponsored by the
Green Futures Institute and the Northwest Center for LIvable
Communities, both in the UW College of Architecture and Urban
Design. Watch for future events that will focus on Sustainable
Energy, and on Civic and Green Infrastructure.
