Join Frederick Fisher, AIA, and Joseph Coriaty, FAIA, of Frederick Fisher and Partners for a look at Santa Monica City Hall East, the first municipal building of its size and density to achieve Living Building Challenge certification as a net zero water and net zero energy building. SMCHE sets a global example that reflects the community’s commitment to sustainability. Everything about it maximizes efficiency and decreases visual presence. Join us to discover how the design/build team worked together to design and build the process and building itself.
