Sim Van der Ryn on Sustainable Design
Monday, 6:30 ? 8:00 pm

Using his own projects and teaching experiences as examples, renowned pioneer in sustainable architecture Sim Van der Ryn will discuss the evolution of his thinking and the emergence of a new process of collaborative design that honors a building?s users and connects them to the earth. Mr. Van der Ryn introduced the nation?s first energy-efficient government building project more than 30 years ago. He will explain how architecture has created physical and mental barriers that separate us from the environment and will propose how we can recover the soul of architecture and reconnect with our natural surroundings. After his lecture, he will sign copies of his book Design for Life: The Architecture of Sim Van der Ryn (Gibbs Smith). 1.5 CEU
