Green Architecture and Urbanism Council (2007)
Nov. 30 - Dec. 2, 2007
Alexandria, Va. and Washington D.C.
New Urbanism and traditional building have many convenient solutions for the inconvenient truth of global warming -- but they haven't yet been well articulated nor well enough known. For that reason, 125 urbanists and traditional architects assembled for 2 1/2 days at the Alexandria Lyceum and the U.S. Capitol to discuss what needs to be done and how to do it.
Like other new urbanist councils, this one was an independently organized meeting of peers — many of them CNU members — with participation from all involved. John Massengale, John Torti and Hank Dittmar were lead organizers. The following organizations were sponsors:
Torti Gallas and Partners
Congress for the New Urbanism
Georgia Tech College of Architecture
Institute for Classical Architecture & Classical America
International Network for Traditonal Building, Architecture & Urbanism
The Prince’s Foundation for the Built Environment
University of Miami School of Architecture
University of Notre Dame School of Architecture
