Materials Matter-blog-header

The AIA Seattle, Materials Matter educational series recently came to an end after 5 sessions on building materials and their environmental impact. The deep dive into material health was co-presented by the Puget Sound chapter of the CSI and took place at Seattle City Hall. Each session focused on an individual sub topic of materials and encouraged the use of interactive tools that can be used to implement the ideas discussed.

The wide variety of speakers during this series provided diverse content. Designers, spec writers, developers, toxicologists, contractors, and manufacturers are just a few of the roles that were represented by speakers at Materials Matter. The University of Washington was well represented during the series, and The International Living Future Institute (ILFI) and Building Green also gave presentations.
