Last year’s 10x10x10 saw trends in passive houses, building measurement methods for evaluating energy usage, and techniques for reducing construction waste. What will emerge as trendy this year is still uncertain but here’s what you can expect from the evening:
Come watch your favorite architects and builders showcase their deep green construction projects as they quickly show you behind the scenes accounts of their successes, lessons, or surprises with each 10 minute, 10 slide PowerPoint presentation. In celebration of the 100-year anniversary of the International Women’s Day, we are highlighting remarkable projects by top women green building professionals.
So if you want to learn more about green building as put into practice by local companies, mark your calendar for Saturday, Sept 10. Show up at 4PM for a tour of Bastyr University student housing buildings which are LEED for Homes Platinum certified or arrive at 6PM for the main event of 10 slides in 10 minutes by 10 participants.
All of the details about the who, what, when, where, and how-much-for-tickets can be found here.
10x10x10 will be hosted by the Northwest EcoBuilding Guild’s Seattle Chapter, and emceed by Patti Southard, of the King County Green Tools Program.
Update 9/2: Well isn’t that just how things go. The one presentation I zero in on (Greenfab) is not able to make the event. That’s okay, there are many more sustainable projects to wow you at 10x10x10 and you can read more detailed descriptions of each in the 10x10x10 Finalist Press Release.
