Architecture and Our Sustainable Future


IEE Executive Director Edward Church was a panelist at the 9th annual Architecture and the City Festival, the nation’s largest architectural festival. This year’s theme is “Architecture of Consequence,” which hopes to demonstrate how progressive design and creative problem solving can address society’s current challenges and lead to a more sustainable future.


Dr. Church spoke on a panel about “Communities of the Future.” Seventy people attended the panel, which examined how increased demands for water, food, energy and recreational space are shaping contemporary architecture.
