    On Wednesday, Forrest Meggers from the Princeton University School of Architecture gave a lecture at the Knowlton School. His focus is mainly on sustainable design within architecture, seeing this not as a hindrance or mere requirement as many architects do, but as a way of invigorating a project and aiding in design. Here, building systems are celebrated. The work that he showed at the lecture primarily dealt with atmospheric effects, and by this I mean that it seeks to improve the quality of the space, increasing human comfortability.

    He explained the current state of buildings and their relationship to the environment, specifically with the amount of energy consumption is required to build and maintain the buildings. This problem is what Forrest is situating himself around.
