RiverArts Salon: Greg Farley talks Green Building Design

RiverArts Salons

Un Salon des Arts Rivières, a RiverArts Salon, is a (virtual) place to learn something new, share ideas, explore interesting topics, see and be seen, and have fun.

Tuesdays from 5 - 5:45, on Zoom

Greg Farley joined us to talk about how building design and architecture are changing to reflect the demand for lower energy use, and less pollution - and how the response of architecture, globally, has been to design show-stopping, inspirational buildings that stand as "living laboratories" for the union between function and form. 

After 17 years on the Eastern Shore as a Professor of Biology at Chesapeake College & Sustainability Director for both Chesapeake and Washington Colleges, Greg is now Director of University Sustainability at George Mason University. Greg is the co-editor of "Thinking Like an Island," developed after his time as a visiting scholar at the Sustainable Living Institute of Maui (SLIM), part of the University of Hawai‘i Maui College. A biologist by training, he holds degrees from Duke University and Florida State University.
