  PRODUCTIVE ARCHITECTURE: FORMAL, MECHANICAL, AND BIOLOGICAL STRATEGIES
Gregory Kiss / Clare Miflin
Kiss + Cathcart, Architects

The presentation will examine Kiss + Cathcart's work over the last 25 years, in the context of their aspiration to produce truly sustainable buildings and infrastructure. Specific performance criteria include net positive energy, sustainable water systems, integrated agriculture, and no waste generation. The goal is to produce better "architecture" in human, aesthetic, and economic terms, and to make an essential contribution to the truly sustainable future.
