SPUR Special Event: Classrooms of the Future: Opening symposium on green school design

11:11 AM PST on December 22, 2009

"Join us for opening night of Classrooms of the Future, an exhibit produced by Architecture for Humanity, on view at the SPUR Urban Center through Feb. 26. The exhibit features winners of the 2009 Open Architecture Challenge, an international design competition for sustainable classrooms. We'll kick off the night with a panel discussion featuring Nik Kaestner, Director of Sustainability at the San Francisco Unified School District, Allen Post from Perkins + Will, De’Anthony Jones, a local high school student, Laura Allen of Greywater Action and a former teacher and Jennifer Afdahl-Rice of NCB Capital Impact. Moderated by Kate Stohr, co-founder of Architecture for Humanity, the discussion will explore the potential of good design to enhance the learning process in schools around the world. The event concludes with wine, cheese and plenty of time to mingle in the Urban Center’s storefront gallery."
