Green World-Mundo Verde Symposium
This past Friday I moderated a panel at Symposium on the greening of architecture, put together by the US GBC, HACIA, Instituto Cervantes and Sao Paulo-Illinois Partners. The agenda is at www.haciaworks.org. Tried to look at the growing green collar jobs movement and how it affects the world of Latino architects, developers and other construction people in Chicago. Thanks to Ald. Manny Flores for sharing his vision for a sustainable city as well as to Paige Finnegan of LEED Council, Aurelio Zarzosa-Ramirez and Lourdex Gonzalez of Primera Construction for all sharing interesting perspectives.
