Sustainable Architecture Lecture

Sustainable Design: Lessons learned in the home and around town

What makes a sustainably designed home? How can you make the leap from a sustainable home to a sustainable city? In a free lecture on Sunday, April 14 at 2 p.m., architect David Burton will explore these questions through the example of a series of residential projects located around California and through the lens of his experience as a Vice President of the Planning Board and community activist for carbon emissions reductions in his hometown of Alameda.

David Burton has been in practice for over twenty years and has extensive experience in the areas of single family residences, multi-family residential, office and retail design, churches, historic preservation, and sustainable design. His designs have been recognized with numerous awards and have been featured in many publications. His work in the area of sustainable design has received wide acclaim and he has presented lectures on the topic around the State of California. His firm, Burton Architecture, based in Berkeley, California, is guided by beliefs in stewardship of the planet and the responsibility to build community through work. For Burton stewardship is design that integrates building and site, is energy and resource efficient, and insures a healthy environment for those who will live and work there. Sunday Arts Lectures are free and open to the public. Admission to the current exhibition John Barnett: Then and Again is $7 general; discounts for Seniors & CAC Members apply. For more information, call (209) 632-5761.
