Title: Stronger, Faster, Better: New Materials for a New Age
Speaker: Christopher Maurer, Principal Architect, Redhouse Studio LLC

Abstract: Buildings are responsible for 40% of carbon emissions. In the U.S. alone, more than 500 million tons of demolition waste go to landfills annually. Learn how an innovative Cleveland architect is developing new materials to help address the waste and pollution created by current construction practices – and how these pioneering materials might have future applications in space.
