Washington, DC (PRWEB) March 30, 2012
The District Architecture Center is set to host its sixth session this year in a free brown bag lunch educational series on April 5th, 2012 at 12:00pm. The latest program is entitled “Greening Your Home” and will offer attendees a detailed look at some common and some lesser-known ways to decrease the environmental impact of your home life.
Led by architect Jon Penndorf, AIA of Perkins+Will, this session from the “25 Architects in 25 Weeks” series will take a comprehensive look at energy efficiency in the home. Workshop participants will learn how to choose more environmentally-responsible materials when renovating, receive water saving tips, and leave with some resources to reference at home when making decisions during daily life.
“Recycling and switching to high-efficiency light bulbs have a significant impact, but Jon has put together a presentation that helps people go so far beyond that,” says Mary Fitch, Executive Director of AIA|DC. “Understanding buildings and their connection to the environment helps people make better decisions on a much broader level.”
The lunch series “25 Architects in 25 Weeks” is typically hosted on the first and third Thursday of every month. It’s held at the District Architecture Center, located at 421 7th St. NW, Washington, DC 20004.
