How Green is Green?
If you're in New York City on Monday eve, November 16, do make time for "Energy and Architecture: How Green is Green" 6:30 p.m. at the Scandinavia House, 58 Park Avenue (between 37th and 38th streets). Both Bjarke Ingels, founder of the Copenhagen firm BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) and Stephen Kieran, principal in the firm of Kieran Timberlake of Philadelphia, will examine the differences and similarities in energy-saving measures used by architects in Denmark and the U.S. Bjarke Ingels' firm is one of this year's Vanguard architects being profiled in the December issue of Record. Stephen Kieran is well known for his Loblolly House in Maryland, and the Cellophane House on display outside at the Museum of Modern Art's "Home Delivery" show last year. They will not only present their current work and research in this area, but discuss the myths and realities surrounding the Green movement. Tickets are $10. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.]
