Film Screening: The Greenest Building

October 20, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

“The Role of Historic Buildings in Creating a Sustainable Culture”

Tuesday, October 20, 2015
6:00 p.m. — 8:00 p.m.

Landmarks Preservation Resource Center
744 Rebbecca Avenue, Wilkinsburg, Pa 15221

In The Greenest Building, Jane Turville, a Portland, Oregon-based preservationist, environmentalist, and writer, examines the extent to which buildings will be demolished over the next couple of decades “in order to replace seemingly inefficient buildings with efficient “green buildings.’”

Restoring old and historic houses is “green building” because repurposing our built environment helps reduce our impact on the natural environment. Join us for a screening of this important documentary that examines the intersection of historic preservation, restoration, green building and sustainability.

Discussion: Stay for a brief discussion on the connection between built and natural heritage, and their important role in creating sustainable societies, which will be facilitated by Mike Schiller, chief executive officer of the Green Building Alliance.

This film screening is free to PHLF and GBA Members. Non-members: $5

RSVPs are appreciated. Contact Mary Lu Denny at 412-471-5808 ext. 527
