“The Ten-Mile House: Why the ‘Greenest’ Buildings Might be Existing Buildings”
Speaker: Steven Engelhart, Executive Director, Adirondack Architectural Heritage
At Whallonsburg Grange Hall
“Much attention has been focused on the sustainable features of various new construction materials, building designs, and new technologies, aimed at reducing energy use and our carbon footprint. But is this the entire story? Can we really build our way out of the carbon/energy crisis?
This lecture will look closely at the example of an existing 19th century home – its anatomy, embodied energy, and how it was constructed to discover why the greenest building may just be the one that already exists.” (Lyceum Series – Whallonsburg Grange Hall)
All lectures begin at 7:30pm on Tuesdays
Series ticket: $35 for 8 lectures; $5 per lecture. Students FREE
What are the Whallonsburg Grange Lyceums?
“Lyceums flourished in the United States from the mid-19th century and were important in the development of adult education. Lecturers, musicians, singers and readers traveled the “lyceum circuit,” going from town to town to entertain, speak, or debate.
