Architect 2030 - Urban Climate Initiative - Toward Zero Emissions
Venue:JLL
Description:

AIA Hong Kong was proud to welcome Edward Mazria, FAIA, Hon. FRAIC, Founder and CEO of Architecture 2030, in addition to The Honorable Wong Kam Sing, Secretary for the Environment for the HKSAR Government in “Architecture 2030 Urban Climate Initiative – Toward Zero Emissions,” held on June 16, 2015.  Hosted at JLL’s offices at Three Pacific Place, the well-attended and jointly-presented interactive evening lecture and discussion revolved around green architecture and energy reduction through design.

Mr. Mazria, an internationally recognized architect, author, researcher, and educator, updated AIA Hong Kong members on the “2030 Challenge.” He also introduced the 2030 Palette, a revolutionary new platform that puts the principles behind low-carbon/zero carbon and resilient built environments at the fingertips of architects, planners, and designers worldwide.  Emphasizing that time is running out relative to irreversible climate change, Mr. Mazria explained how architects and planners can — and must — have a major impact on climate change mitigation through design, using methods for achieving carbon reduction goals locally and globally with a focus toward zero emissions.

Following Mr. Mazria’s thought-provoking presentation, Mr. K.S. Wong shared the HKSAR Government’s new “Energy Saving Plan,” which featured many goals and aspirations that appeared to be in alignment with Mr. Mazria’s 2030 Challenge.  An architect by profession. Mr. Wong has been promoting green building and building energy efficiency since he began practicing, and is now a driving force for positive change in the HKSAR Government after taking office in 2012.  After the presentation, both speakers fielded a wide range of challenging questions from members, ranging from global energy efficient design to the complicated impacts of waste management in Hong Kong.

AIA Hong Kong would like to thank both Mr. Mazria and Mr. Wong for their valuable time and insights.  The Chapter would also like to thank JLL for providing a convenient venue at Three Pacific Place, Peroni for providing specialty beers during the event, and SGRI/ GGG for recycling the glass beer bottles from the event.

AIA Hong Kong members who attended this event earned 1.5 LUs / HSW toward their annual mandatory continuing education requirements.
