Craig Hartman Lecture: Architecture and Urban Ecology: Things in the Making
Craig Hartman, Design Partner for Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, San Francisco, will be giving a lecture on the firm’s project for the Hongqiao New Central Business District in Shanghai, China. The Hongqiao New CBD is designed to be an energy efficient and environmentally conscious development characterized by a highly pedestrian-friendly environment. Located next to what will become the world’s largest intermodal transit facility, the development focuses on reducing carbon dioxide emissions through a series of sustainable strategies, such as integration of highly efficient transportation systems, rain water collection, on-site water treatment, on-site renewable energy generation, and energy efficient building envelopes and systems.
Tuesday November 13, 7:00pm, 601 Brannan Street, Ground Floor.
