Sustainability Perspectives Talk by Dennis Andrejko: "Sustainable Architecture"
Feb 4 @ 12:15pm

The Sustainability Perspectives Series presents "Sustainable Architecture: Exploring and Unraveling Elements of Healthy, Livable and Resilient Buildings and Communities," with Dennis Andrejko from the Golisano Institute for Sustainability's Department of Architecture.

Service to society is at the core of the architectural profession. In a multitude of ways, the architectural design process explores methods and suggests solutions to enrich and improve not only buildings, but also regions, communities, and neighborhoods. Sustainable architecture provides an opportunity to provide cutting-edge design that is high performing, energy efficient, environmentally sensitive, and contextually driven. This presentation shares ideas centered on forward-thinking sustainable built environments that ultimately enhance the health, well-being, resiliency and vibrancy of those we serve.

This event will take place at 12:20 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 4, 2019 in the de Witt Lecture Room (Zabriskie Hall 106) on the Wells College campus. Admission is free, and all are welcome to attend.
