Jason McLennan to make UK debut at 'net-positive' design debate

  • Comment

In his first UK appearance, architect and author Jason McLennan, CEO and founder of the Pacific northwest’s International Living Future Institute, will speak on net-positive and restorative environmental design

A recipient of the $100,000 Buckminster Fuller Prize (2012) and an Ashoka fellow, McLennan is passionate about the health impacts of the built environment, author of the rigorous Living Building Challenge certification (2006) and contributing author to the Well Building Standard (2014).

Chaired by AJ sustainability editor Hattie Hartman, the panel of industry experts will debate ways forward for net-positive design at the event at the Royal College Of Physicians, London on Monday 5 October.

John Alker, UKGBC director of policy and communications, will present the UKGBC’s  new campaign Better Places for People, and Ann Marie Aguilar of Arup Associates and Martin Brown of Fairsnape will provide an overview of net-positive built environment  initiatives – those which promote health and well-being – across the UK.  Other panellists include representatives of British Land and Straw Works.

The event is jointly organised by Arup Associates, the International Living Future Institute and Leeds-based Living Building Challenge UK Collaborative.
