On Wednesday, November 11, SOM Directors Luke Leung and Yasemin Kologlu will present at the Greenbuild 2020 International Conference and Expo. Recognized as industry leaders in sustainability, Leung and Kologlu will lead a session titled “A New Standard in Facade Design.”

Kologlu, a Design Director and co-leader of SOM’s Climate Action Group, will discuss how we can rethink facade design in order to reduce carbon and waste while improving occupant well-being. Leung, who is Director of SOM’s MEP + Sustainable Engineering studio, will discuss the factors that will have an increasingly significant impact on the design and construction of facades in the future—such as climate, life cycle carbon, and human wellness. Kologlu and Leung will be joined by Z Smith, Principal and Director of Sustainability and Building Performance at Eskew Dumez Ripple (EDR).

This year's virtual edition of Greenbuild 2020 features collaborative education sessions, virtual booths, and keynotes from industry leaders in green design and construction.
