New Energy Works Webinar Designing to Cool the Climate



Join us as we explore beyond zero: architecture is just starting to take on its role as climate healer by transforming buildings from massive carbon emitters into effective carbon sponges. The technology already exists, and gets better every day; build with plants, wood, and emissions we retrieved from the air. Bring the carbon home in buildings made from the sky.

Author, engineer, advisor, green building expert, and international speaker, Bruce King (The New Carbon Architecture), David Arkin AIA—Arkin Tilt, and Jonathan Orpin–Founder/President of Pioneer Millworks will share how our building material choices can positively impact our climate
