What does truly sustainable design look like at the building and neighborhood scale? Kathryn Rogers Merlino will share the findings from her recent book, Building Reuse: Sustainability, Preservation, and the Value of Design. Learn about how reusing and reimagining existing buildings can reduce carbon emissions, spur economic growth, and improve neighborhood character. Register below to reserve your spot.

“When we travel, we seek out existing buildings and places because they have a history and a cultural value to them. I think the messiness and complexity of older buildings appeals to our human nature, often more than new buildings, especially when they look exactly like all the rest of the buildings in the neighborhood.”  – Kathryn Rogers Merlino
