Green Architecture vs. "Green Architecture"

Speaker:Professor Edna Shaviv
Affiliation:Technion, Architecture
Location:Lidow Rosen Auditorium (323)
Abstract:We review the new trend in modern architecture: "Green Architecture" and explain what it means in terms of new building design and future urban landscape.
We show how the new American building code does not fully address the crucial energy saving issue in new buildings and how the Israeli new standard copes successfully with the problem. Various truly GREEN and advertised "GREEN" examples will be presented.
