I’m live blogging from GreenBuild Chicago

I’ll be attending the Expo, to check out all the green products and services available to me as an architect.  I got here very early, to avoid the lines.   The number of attendants has far exceeded what was planned for.  This is excellent in many ways, but has obviously been a hurdle for the event planners to manage. 

I will only be attending the expo, but my partner in crime is attending a number of classes this week, and so he’ll report on a variety of topics, including Sustainable Residential Development in Canada and building Green Communities.



WHEN: Thursday October 18, 2007 at 7p.m.

Free of Charge and Open to the Public.

WHERE: Billy Wilder Theater at the Hammer Museum

10899 Wilshire Blvd (at Westwood), Los Angeles, CA

Fully automated to allow for simplicity and control, it is filled with the latest in gadgets, gear and appliances, yet still keeps kilowatt usage low. The home’s anticipated energy use is 36 percent more efficient than a conventional residence of a similar size. Wired LivingHome will be open for tours from October 27th to November 11th.
