Edward Mazria, AIA, founder of Architecture 2030, has been selected to receive the 2015 Edward C. Kemper Award. The American Institute of Architects (AIA) chose Mazria for “catalyzing the architecture community to address climate change through the design of decarbonized, sustainable and resilient built environments.”
The architect, author and educator is a pioneer of the green building movement. In 2006, Mazria founded Architecture 2030 and issued the 2030 Challenge, offering an achievable approach to greatly reducing the fossil fuel consumption of new construction by 2030. Most recently, Mazria presented a “Roadmap to Zero Emmissions” to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), detailing a clear path to zero emissions in the built environment by 2050.
