On January 25, 2013 experts will gather at the University of Pennsylvania School of Design in Philadelphia to discuss the question, What is the influence of climate and region on architecture and energy? "Buildings are not sustainable," say the organizers. "They can only be more-or-less efficient in their consumption of resources." This public symposium, Architecture and Energy, is sponsored in part by the U.S. Department of Energy. The event surely will continue the conversation, but haven't we had enough talk? Don't we need more action? Leave a comment and tell us what you think.
