The Green Gala is recognized throughout the region as the single largest annual vehicle for communication, celebration and bridge-building among those who think, act, design and build greener throughout the County of Los Angeles and its metropolitan areas.
With a reputation for presenting keynote speakers that challenge all boundaries, USGBC-LA is proud to announce Founder and CEO of Architecture for Humanity, Cameron Sinclair, as this year’s selection. Trained as an architect, he developed an interest in social, cultural and humanitarian design. An author (Design Like You Give A Damn: Architectural Responses to Humanitarian Crises) and international speaker, Sinclair is heavily involved in bringing socially relevant building into academia. As a result of his 2006 TED Prize, Architecture for Humanity launched the Open Architecture Network, the world's first open source community dedicated to improving living conditions through innovative and sustainable design.
This year’s Gala theme, “Making Waves”, reflects Sinclair’s approach. He will address his organization’s forward-thinking architectural and design solutions to global, social and humanitarian crises. The theme also represents both the impact that USGBC-LA has upon the environment, as well as the importance of recognizing the world’s (especially Southern California’s) most precious resource: WATER.
Tickets are $250.
