DESCRIPTION: “There’s no excuse anymore,” remarked Snøhetta’s co-founder Kjetil Trædal Thorsen during the November opening of an energy-positive building in Norway. Referring to fully circular thinking that can push buildings to surpass LEED and other classification systems, Snøhetta is at the forefront of sustainable architectural design.

It is a well-established fact that buildings and their construction together account for 36 percent of global energy use and 39 percent of energy-related carbon dioxide emissions annually.

Recognizing the responsibility that architects have in addressing this, Snøhetta has pledged that all their projects within the next 20 years will be carbon neutral, meaning that their buildings will generate enough energy to compensate for carbon emitted not only during the production of building materials and construction, but also the operation and decommissioning at the end of the building's life.

Please join us as we explore their work, including the new Ford Master Plan in Dearborn and the Times Square Reconstruction in New York City. The individuals at Snøhetta understand that collaboration and knowledge sharing is essential in the fight against climate change, and AIA Detroit is beyond excited to welcome them to our COMMONS series. They want everyone to understand that the level of sustainability reached on their projects is attainable to all those who simply show interest and are committed to social and environmental sustainability.
