WHAT: Presentation Summary -
Philadelphia-based architect Scott Kelly, principal of Re:Vision Architecture, will outline a path that architects and other industry professionals will need to take in order to reach the ambitious energy reduction goals set by the AIA for 2030. He will discuss the history of codes and the effects they have had on the building profession and how more stringent future codes will impact the industry moving forward.
The presentation will address designing for a site’s “carrying capacity” including implementing passive and active energy and water conservation strategies, how to design high performance buildings that lighten the load on mechanical systems, and how to apply historical knowledge of environmental design strategies. Also being discussed is how the design of an efficient building envelope in both new and existing buildings can have a significant impact on energy performance in the southern climate.
Scott D. Kelly , Principal-In-Charge, AIA, LEED AP BD+C|ID+C|ND|O+M
Scott is co-founder and Principal of Re:Vision Architecture, a “deep green” architecture and sustainability consulting practice with offices in Philadelphia, PA and Berkeley, CA. Beginning his career with historic preservation and adaptive re-use projects, Scott became interested in the building elements and methods that cause buildings to endure and be more sustainable. Although Scott was an early adopter of the US Green Building Council’s LEED benchmarking system, he continues to push the envelope of green building through “living building” and “zero -energy” projects. In addition to practicing and teaching green architecture, Scott also consults to design firms, developers, building owners and manufacturers who are interested in green design charrettes, sustainable design, and green building rating systems such as LEED. For his advocacy and design work, Scott was awarded the Philadelphia AIA’s prestigious Young Architect Award, and his firm has received numerous awards, including the Cascadia Green Building Council Living Building Challenge Award, the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association’s Zero-Net Energy Award and Awards of Excellence from the Society of American Registered Architects. Scott is a frequent presenter at the regional and national level.
