Edward Mazria 2015 Kemper prize winner
Architecture 2030 founder Edward Mazria was awarded the AIA's Edward Kemper Prize for 2015. With this award the American Institute of Architects honoured Mazria "for catalyzing the architecture community to address climate change through the design of decarbonized, sustainable, and resilient built environments."
Author, researcher, and professor, Edward Mazria is among the pioneers of eco-responsible building. Mazria founded Architecture 2030 in 2006, and issued a measured, achievable challenge to reduce fossil fuel consumption in new buildings. Mazria also presented the "Roadmap to Zero Emissions" to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), which details a clear path, with incremental steps and specific methods leading to a zero emissions built environment by 2050.
Architecture 2030 supports the '2050 Imperatives' declaration signed by the UIA and its partners in Durban. Edward Mazria will participate in the conference organised by the UIA in Paris, on 30 November 2015, as part of COP21.
