What Is Green Architecture?

From a press release that landed in my inbox:
WHAT IS GREEN ARCHITECTURE?

A Talk by Jürgen Mayer H.
Lecture + Dialog
02/07/08
7:00pm
Goethe-Institut New York
1014 Fifth Avenue@83rd Street
New York, NY 10028
English
Free admission. No reservations required.
212-439-8700
This lecture and dialog is the first of four planned in the What Is Green Architecture? series, curated by MoMA's Andres Lepik, who also moderates the events. The following three conversations are Matthias Schuler on April 1, Christoph Ingenhoven on May 19, and Matthias Sauerbruch on June 16.

Furthermore, "Inspiration for What Is Green Architecture? stems partly from the forward-thinking desire of the Goethe-Institut New York to transform its landmark Beaux-Arts townhouse on Fifth Avenue into a showcase of sustainable design and interior architecture." These and other programs will influence the "greening" of their home over the next couple years. Sounds like a thoughtful and unique way of designing responsibly and educating the public at the same time.
