Along with attending sessions and enjoying the expo area at Greenbuild 2012, I had a chance to celebrate the language of green with hundreds of colleagues and friends at DPR's hospitality event at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Guests mingled and explored the museum's modern and contemporary art.
The world's largest conference and expo dedicated to green building, Greenbuild features three days of inspiring speakers, invaluable networking opportunities, industry showcases, LEED workshops and tours of the host city's green buildings. (This year's tours included DPR's Sacred Heart Schools, Packard Foundation Headquarters and Lorry I. Lokey Graduate School of Business.)
I also had a chance to compete against a fellow "greenie" and friend in an energy-producing bike race during Greenbuild:
The race was for Project Haiti, the USGBC's current philanthropy project. Environmental Building Strategies (EBS) and Integral Group shared booth space and donated $10,000 to Project Haiti as a result of some donations. Learn more about it here.
Would love to hear about your Greenbuild experiences or what you thought of the DPR event.
