Architecture 2030 founder Edward Mazria will deliver Architecture 2030 and the Concrete Industry during the opening session of NRMCA’s annual convention on Monday, March 4. His presentation will illustrate the powerful role of the built environment in both creating and alleviating many of the crises facing America and the world today. Mazria is an internationally recognized architect who reshaped the national and international dialogue on energy and climate change by bringing the building sector – the largest energy consumer and contributor to global warming – to center stage.

Mazria’s research shows conclusively that buildings are responsible for almost half of all U.S. energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, and that any viable solution to global warming must run through the building sector. As an award-winning architect with more than 35 years of experience in low energy and passive solar energy design, and the author of numerous published works, including The Passive Solar Energy Book, Mazria is preeminently qualified to develop a method for transforming the building sector from the greatest contributor to climate change to its leading solution. Based on his experience and research, Mazria developed and issued the widely adopted 2030 Challenge, a measured and achievable strategy to dramatically reduce global GHG emissions and fossil fuel consumption by the year 2030.

As a follow-up, Francesca Desmarais, manager of Architecture 2030’s Challenge for Products, will present at the 2013 International Concrete Sustainability Conference, May 6-8, in San Francisco.
