Announcing PAE on Point

PAE on Point is a new showcase of our experts in thought leadership. Join us for 30 minutes of discussion including more than half of that time left for questions and answers. Our experts will take a deep dive into a variety of topics alongside our energy, water, lighting, and tech geeks.

The first speaker of the fall edition features Justin Stenkamp on Relationships in ecosystems.

Relationships, interdependence, and connection are key elements of functional ecology. Our biology is driven by millions of years of evolution and interaction with ecology. Justin will talk about leadership through biological and ecological lenses driving to an important question: Are we overlooking these vital applications of science to help resolve climate change?

What if nature wore t-shirts with Karina Hershberg.
Our materials supply chain is a linear, wasteful flow with devastating impacts along its path. The AEC industry is looking at solutions for building materials, but perhaps could be thinking even bigger for all systems, and all functions, in the built environment. Karina asks us to look at sourcing as a cycle using her local thrift store as inspiration, driving us to a metaphorical question that can guide us on realistic, actionable steps: What if Nature Wore T-shirts?

Nature has no waste with David Mead.
How can we design built environments that mimic nature and create negative emissions? How can we go beyond story-telling and create quantifiable solutions for drawing down greenhouse gases? David has been working hard to understand and implement measurable solutions in practice. In this session, he will show how reductionist methods can be united to understand the total emissions of projects and explore how to start drawing emissions down from the built environment.
