Yestermorrow at GreenBuild

Yestermorrow has hit GreenBuild by storm-- this year's annual US Green Building Council conference is in Boston this week and Yestermorrow is well represented. We have a booth (#463- come say hi!) which we're sharing with our friends from the VT chapter of the Congress of Residential Architecture (including YM faculty John Connell, Daniel Johnson, and John McLeod). We also wandered around the (huge) expo hall and ran into instructors Bill Hulstrunk (National Fiber), Jim Newman (Building Green), Buzz Ferver (Filtrexx), Gunnar Hubbard (Fore Solutions) and Brad Guy (Building Materials Reuse Association). Not to mention all the other instructors and students who are attending the conference and stopped by to say hello. It's exciting to see how big this green building movement has become and what a diverse group of people are attracted to it. Today I went to two education sessions-- one on greening high school trades programs, and another on the future of sustainable design education in architecture schools. Tomorrow the focus will be on residential green building, then things wrap up on Friday with closing speakers and sessions.
