Sustainability @CityHall 
Join us at City Hall on the 3rd Tuesday of the month on the 10th Floor. This event series brings together leaders from the AIA|LA, the Los Angeles Business Council, the Urban Land Institute, and USGBC-LA to discuss sustainably built projects. The goal is to have meaningful discussion on what barriers exist to completing projects and make suggestions on streamlining sustainability for all.

Special thanks to Mayor Garcetti's Office of Sustainability for inspiring and facilitating this series.  

September 2014 Presention:

Living in a Material World
Presented by Anthony Brower, AIA, LEED AP

Where is the new world of product specification going?  Products that perform aren’t necessarily safe - and safer products don’t necessarily perform. Where can we find the common ground in this new arena of design performance?  

This talk will be looking at 4 items:
  • Understanding the key factors and constraints of material selections when imposing a chemical restriction, or health requirement, in the selection process.
  • Identifying areas of most significant impact to building occupants.
  • Define a truly actionable and achievable materials goal for targeted healthy material specification.
  • Introducing awareness into the manufacturing process as a logical first step
