Funding from LEAf
The new Greenroofs.com website is made possible with the generous support from the Legacy Emilio Ambasz Foundation (LEAf).
Founded by pioneering green architect Emilio Ambasz, the foundation’s main purpose is to support architects who merit being called artists as well as those building ideas which may greatly improve domestic and urban life. We at Greenroofs.com are extremely grateful for the financial assistance of a recent LEAf grant and proud of the professional endorsement from our colleague to continue our efforts in promote living architecture.
Emilio Ambasz, Commendatore della Rep. Italiana, Ordine della Stella d’Italia, Honorary Fellow of the American Institute of Architects, Honorary International Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects, ISA 2014 Medal for Science; The Institute for Advanced Studies, University of Bologna, “Madre Terra” First Award, 2015, is a multiple award-winning architect, industrial designer, and principal of Emilio Ambasz & Associates. Ambasz is an early proponent of green architecture with projects around the world, and Ambasz’s trademark style is a combination of buildings and gardens, which he describes as ‘green over the gray’. Mr. Ambasz’ large number of prestigious projects include the Mycal Sanda Cultural Center in Shin-Sanda, Japan; the Museum of American Folk Art in New York City; the Conservatory at the San Antonio Botanical Center, Texas; the ACROS Fukuoka Prefectural International Hall in Japan; Casa de Retiro Espiritual in Cordoba, Spain; Environment Park (EnviPark) in Turin, Italy; and the Veneto Eye Bank Foundation (Fondazione Banca degli Occhi del Veneto Onlus) in Venice, Italy.
The author of several books, his brand new book, Emerging Nature: Emilio Ambasz Precursor of Architecture and Design by Lars Müller Publishers, is available now on the publishers’ website. Learn more about Emilio Ambasz at the 2017 Greenroofs & Walls of the World™ Virtual Summit: Connecting the Planet + Living Architecture ~ People, Projects & Design, where he is an honored keynote. His video presentation is entitled “The Green Over the Gray.”
Look for the New Website Launch in 2018
“I have been a huge fan of Emilio since during my days at the University of Georgia in the late 1990’s where I studied about his international projects and leadership in the field of green architecture. Emilio’s dramatic ecological and provocative designs paired with his pragmatic thinking on how we can create a design paradigm shift from from gray to green have inspired generations of architects, landscape architectures, and designers of many interrelated disciplines.
We were so excited at the news of the LEAf grant and plans were put in place immediately to initiate the huge, time consuming task of a website redesign of this magnitude.”~ Linda S. Velazquez, ASLA, LEED AP, GRP, Founder & Publisher of Greenroofs.com
