BTW I was very happy to read this from the AIA: https://archinect.com/news/article/1501 ... n-new-deal
"Most notably, the bill calls for densifying urban areas and demands the U.S. 'upgrade all existing buildings and build new buildings, to achieve maximal energy efficiency, water efficiency, safety, affordability,
comfort, and durability'Ã¢â‚¬â€�both of which would have huge impacts for how and what architects design."
So---we seem to have conflicting prescriptions: no new buildings (Temko) vs new buildings (Markey and Ocasio-Cortez). I think, human nature (and economics) being what they are, that the AIA supports the more likely scenario ?
Does Mr Temko suggest that we stop eating, too, and selling things to each other ? Anyway, I'm looking forward to hearing (or reading) everything that he had to say . . .
Regarding the AIA endorsement of the Green New Deal, the urgency of the need to address climate crisis vs the monied special interests that fight the change is a battle that is currently being fought. I'm glad the AIA is taking a proactive step to counter the forces that want to to keep the status quo.
