"The Power of Exponential Thinking:  Creating the XPRIZE for Healthy Buildings"

presented by: Eric Corey Freed, Chief Community Officer, EcoDistricts

Imagine if we could harness the power of nature's technologies to create a new type of construction, where every building is a LEED Platinum building.  In this talk, you'll discover how we can harness the cutting edge science to literally GROW buildings that absorb VOCs and CO2, heal themselves and adapt to their surroundings.  Hear from a LEED Fellow on a new innovation that will transform our industry.

In 2016, the XPRIZE Foundation set out to establish a “moonshot” for construction by creating the XPRIZE for Healthy Buildings.  In this talk, you’ll learn how the team approached this unique opportunity to develop a way to (literally) grow buildings by fusing synthetic biology, genomics, parametric modeling and 3D printing to create a disruption and paradigm shift.

Please join us for drinks, food, networking and this new talk from one of our favorite presenters, Eric Corey Freed!
