Inaugural Green WIDEN: Lean, Green and Built to Last

On September 30th, 2013, Green College initiated its WIDEN series with an institution-appropriate theme: “Lean, Green and Built to Last.

From Roman aqueducts to skyscrapers of engineered timber to building community (like Green College) so that we can last, this interdisciplinary panel will discuss the brilliance of concrete (literally) as well as abstract building ideas from the past and for the future.

This talk featured Alexandra Cheng from Structural Engineering, Sebastian Medrano, also from Engineering, Patricia Taylor, Classical Archaeology, and Timothy Baird, from Community and Regional Planning.

Green’s WIDEN series is currently running under the umbrella of another speaker’s series that has a long history at the College, called the Members’ Series talks. The Members’ Series happens every Monday night at 8pm in the Coach House at Green College, and is given by current residents of the College on topics within their fields of study. The WIDEN talks, of course, are not limited to current Greenies as speakers!
