Students in Carol Cisco’s Sustainable Design classes attended the Building Chicago Expo at the Holiday Inn Chicago (across from the Merchandise Mart) on September 10 and 11. Carol filled me in on all the details and provided photos she took at the event:
The keynote speaker was Jerry Yudelson, author of many books on sustainable design, including Green Building A to Z, the required textbook for the class. So students brought their books, and after the lecture, Jerry was kind enough to autograph them.
Carol shares: “After the signing, the students sat together in the lounge next to the lecture hall and discussed what they found interesting in Jerry’s lecture. They were buzzed and really got into a discussion on the subject. While we were still there Jerry came out of the lecture hall and stopped by our discussion group to answer questions that the students brought up that only he could address.”
