Our September 2020 Newsletter is Out!

How are you doing during the pandemic, climate-exacerbated extreme weather and catastrophic wildfires, and protests for police reform? Hopefully healthy and well while over 29 million people on Earth have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and many cities are dealing with evacuations, renewed lockdowns, and curfews.

We’re good here at and have been busy this summer preparing to leave the beautiful foothills of the Georgia Piedmont. We’ve finally reconnected with our Florida roots and moved our HQ to the Sarasota area!

With social distancing measures in place, more events are going virtual including CitiesAlive next month. Thank you to so many who have honored us with your kind words about being the front runners with our Greenroofs & Walls of the World Virtual Summits™ since 2011. Initially we felt this was the best, most inclusive, and least expensive way to engage a large number of living architecture colleagues from across the globe. But clearly, now it may not be a simple matter of choice when we are able to conduct business in person. Continued success to all.

Finally, kudos to our dear friend Emilio Ambasz who has received the XXVI Compasso d’Oro Award, this time in recognition for his work, having registered over 220 industrial and mechanical patents, and of course, green architecture! Considered the “Oscar of Design,” an installation of 18 trees representing one for each prize will become part of the urban forestation program promoted by the Region of Lombardy and the city of Milan in order to enhance green urban spaces.
