Join us for an evening with Internationally Recognized Designer Jason McLennan

On the evening of January 30th, Jason F. McLennan, an internationally recognized leader in the sustainable building industry and CEO of the International Living Future Institute (Institute) and Cascadia Green Building Council will deliver a public lecture that is free and open to the public.  The lecture is sponsored by the Mayor and the City Council of Bend. McLennan will speak on the topic of community transformation and the future of architecture and design and address opportunities for Bend to embrace restorative development principles. The lecture will be at the Tower Theater, 835 Northwest Wall Street, Bend. Doors open at 6 PM and the lecture begins at 6:30.  
McLennan’s visit to Bend kicks off a unique collaboration between the City and the Institute, a non profit organization that developed and administers the world’s most progressive and stringent building standard called the Living Building Challenge.  Living Buildings are quickly emerging around the world and demonstrate the highest level of environmental performance currently possible.

The City’s partnership with the Institute began in 2010, when a group of Bend’s leading architects, planners and engineers came together to enter the Institute’s Living City Design Competition.  What emerged was the Bend Living City Project, which was supported by the action items of the BEND 2030 Vision.  The Project has since made an important contribution to Bend’s long-range planning.  The City now hopes to work with the Institute to apply the Living Building Challenge framework to future planning projects yet to be determined.  

When: Doors open at 6PM, Lecture begins at 6:30PM.
