    The Redwood Empire Chapters of CSI and USGBC will be hosting this FREE event where we will join author Bruce King in discussing his book Build Beyond Zero. Written along with Chris Magwood, the authors show how buildings are culprits but stand poised to act as climate healers. They offer an exciting vision of climate-friendly architecture, along with practical advice for professionals working to address the carbon footprint of our built environment.

    CASBA director Massey Burke and member Bruce King both appear in a video devoted to building with straw, recently released by Patagonia. The credits also thank CASBA and members David Arkin, Jim Reiland, and Anthony Dente. Participating in the making of the video was an unexpected honor, and a delight. Thank you to Yvon Chouinard & architect Dylan Johnson for championing straw building, and giving us the opportunity to help!
