The issue of sustainability as it pertains to commercial and residential building is large, multi-dimensional and evolving. Join us as a panel of leading national experts discusses the current state of the industry, and addresses important, relevant questions about its status and growth. To focus the forum, the panel will begin with the intellectual and philosophical question – “What is sustainability?” – and will then move to discuss its applicability to building specifically. This is intentional to focus discussion along the parameters of whether we are, as an industry, focusing on the right issues in day-to-day business.
The symposium features a panel presentation with audience question-and-answer. Diana Tychsen, senior editor, CS Interiors, will moderate the session, which is hosted by Karen Kalmek, president, Green Home Chicago Design Center.
