Next week, the Greenbuild Expo will be in Chicago, making the city the site for a multinational event celebrating years of research, development, and innovation in sustainable architecture and construction. It is said to be the biggest Greenbuild yet, with approximately 18,000 attendees”the first conference only five years ago drew 4,200. No less than Former President Bill Clinton will be on hand to kick off the show. Needless to say, this will be an epic reference point for the future of the eco-conscious design and building community… and for those of us who live and work in buildings.
On the evening of Wednesday, November 7th, after a full day of keynotes by internationally-renowned leaders and innovators, over 850 exhibit booths demonstrating the newest products and technologies, and dozens of educational sessions, we will be winding down (or just starting to kick it to the sun) at the PDX Lounge for Film & Fashion Night. Located at the Chicago Illuminating Company, PDX Lounge is a home away from home during Greenbuild for Oregon businesses with an interest in sustainability. Film & Fashion Night will feature continuous screenings of independent environmental short films, sustainable outdoor clothing by Nau and footwear from the fine cobblers at Keen, performances of Pilates, Flatland BMX and Parkour by The Tribe, and beats from a seasoned DJ collective”not to mention cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.
Film & Fashion Night will be an event that can only be defined by its audience, so, download a ticket, print it out on sustainable goods, and come enjoy the unique flavor brought to us by a Portland communal in Chicago, the best No Coast City with one of the greenest futures.
