As the burning of fossil fuels warms the earth’s temperature and
humans continue rapidly depleting global petroleum and natural gas
reserves, we have found ourselves at a crossroads. Santa Barbara’s
Sustainability Project is doing its part to bring such issues to
light, and to examine the role that the architecture and building
communities will play in creating true change. On September 26, The
Sustainability Project will host Edward Mazria, an internationally
recognized architect and author of The Passive Solar Energy
, who will speak on the subject; a panel of local experts
will then discuss how to apply Mazria’s concepts in Santa Barbara.
