Sustainable design is crucial for mankind. Buildings are responsible for approximately 40% of global CO2 emissions. Water and other natural resources must be utilized effectively to manage limited resources. Hospitals and other health care facilities generate major energy and natural resource demands.
The School of Architecture & Design’s Institute of Health+Wellness Design has invited three leading health care design professionals to discuss the future of sustainability in health care facilities: Steve McDowell, FAIA, director of design, BNIM; Rick Maniktala, president, BranchPattern; and Willa Kuh, director of planning for Building Performance, AEI, Inc. At the conclusion of the Symposium, join the speakers for a reception in 305 Marvin Hall.
The Symposium will explore the issues affecting the ways that architects and designers can incorporate sustainable design principles in environments that enhance human health and well-being. Please encourage your students to attend this event and join the speakers for a reception at 2:30 in 305 Marvin Hall.
