AIA, LFA, Associate, Living Building Challenge Services Director
Every architect should be responsibly designing. According to Chris, influencing architecture from an ecological perspective is the most meaningful impact one can have on the industry, as it is so imperative that the field of architecture move forward at no less than the same speed that the climate changes.
As Miller Hull’s Living Building Challenge Services Director, Chris believes deeply in the future of living buildings. “Living Buildings can be integrated so well into sustainable design curriculum, and can additionally tie into a lot of companies’ missions and goals. “
Chris has completed five certified Living Buildings in his career, with several more currently in design and construction. He has written extensively on the topic, authoring a book titled Living Building Education, has founded the Seattle 2030 Roundtable, and has co-founded the Healthy Materials Collaborative. He is also involved with public policy at a local, state, and federal levels, helping with code development, state laws, policy development, and public testimony. As an Affiliate Instructor with the University of Washington, Chris taught a graduate sustainability course for the College of Built Environments. Chris is also recipient of the AIA’s Young Architect Award.
