Tropical Green: Miami Conference About Sustainable Building

The city of Miami is booming with plans for a whopping 100 new buildings to be added. On February 9 & 10, 2006, Metropolis Magazine will present Tropical Green, a two-day conference to explore and educate architects, interior designers, developers, city planners, politicians and voters on sustainable building and design in warm climates. Not only does the city need to consider eco-friendly design principles for environmental reasons, but also because this approach is a smart business investment, offering long-term profits and, in many cases, higher selling prices. Featured speakers will include green guru William McDonough, engineer Guy Battle, and founding USBGC chairman Rick Fedrizzi and topics will range from green development policies to sustainable interiors to earth-friendly technologies. ::Metropolis Magazine
