What lesson do the largest sustainable office building in the Southern Hemisphere, the smallest of houses in Tokyo, and an underground shopping mall in Mexico City share? They are in fact a perfect response to their conditions. An authentic architecture has emerged- from Melbourne’s kinetically charged buildings, Tokyo’s tiny homes, Cascadia’s large wood, Germany’s energy efficiency, Copenhagen’s bike culture, Mexico’s underground program, and Spain’s elegant day lit commercial buildings. These are new environmental architecture archetypes which boldly anticipate the needs of the future by using place as the catalyst.

Come join Andrew Michler as he discusses what he learned in writing his new book, Hyperlocalization of Architecture, which explores the possibilities and promise of deep sustainable building design through the lens of some of the most provocative projects and esteemed architects of our time.

Meeting Entry Fee is $5.00 per person (Free for CRES members) and includes one complimentary beer.

Andrew Michler has lived off-grid for two decades in the Colorado Rocky Mountains and is a LEED AP BD+C and Passive House Consultant. He has written extensively on sustainable architecture in print and for leading design blogs. With an extensive background in sustainable design and construction he pioneered a net zero energy and foam free Passive House informed by the local foothills as a personal investigation in to the potential of hyperlocal design. His house is one of the most energy efficient buildings in the Americas.
