greenbuildinglawupdateChris of Green Building Law Update posted this interview with Ecobuild keynote speaker and current AIA President Marvin Malecha.

Back in December, Kimberly Miller of Sensible City provided me with a press pass to EcoBuild, which is a fantastic event for those interested in discussing green building policy. At EcoBuild, I was able to interview some brilliant people that have been involved with green building much longer than myself. One such individual was Marvin Malecha, the 2009 American Institute of Architects (AIA) President. I hope you enjoy the interview.

Chris: The topic of your keynote speech at Ecobuild was “Inheritance & Responsibility.” How does inheritance and responsibility tie into the current green building industry?

Marvin Malecha: Perhaps our greatest inheritance is the environment. But it is important to understand that inheritance does not always imply that an abundance was given. In fact many times inheritance has also been defined as the debts of another generation to be paid by the next and the next. In the case of the environment we are in a position of both. We have inherited a world with areas still pure. Areas that contain within them the memory of a planet that was a pure habitat. A planet that nurtured life.
