Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope® Partners With Columbia University To Present "The Future Of Energy"

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope ® has partnered with Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP) on "The Future of Energy," bringing together world-renowned experts to exchange ideas on how best to address energy production and consumption issues for the future. This full-day conference is open to the public and will be held on Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at The Museum of Modern Art in New York City from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

"The Future of Energy" is an interdisciplinary research program devoted to exploring key questions facing designers, developers and other professionals who are concerned with energy, efficiency and sustainability in the building industry. This collaborative effort between Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope® and GSAPP resists focusing on specific technologies or prospective energy sources. Instead, it examines energy both discursively and thematically, addressing such issues as how problems of the future of energy are framed and how these problems are conceived and discussed.

Along with a distinguished panel of leaders in the fields of architecture, engineering and construction, keynote speakers include two of the preeminent minds in energy today.  Matthias Schuler is an engineer, an Adjunct Professor of Environmental Technology at Harvard GSD and the founder of Stuttgart, Germany-based Transsolar. Schuler works with well-known architects in high-profile projects to develop sustainable design strategies for buildings.  Economist Jeffrey Sachs is the director of The Earth Institute, a professor at Columbia University, Special Advisor to United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, and author of several books including The Price of Civilization.
