It’s Time to Face It
Edward Mazria is still fighting the good fight–virtually. As a follow-up to last year’s successful 2010 Imperative Global Emergency Teach-in, Mazria’s organization Architecture 2030 will host another student-focused webcast on January 30th.
The Face It webcast is part of Architecture 2030’s larger Reverberate Campaign which will feature several events throughout 2008. Two competitions for students will be unveiled during the webcast. While full details won’t be released until the webcast, we can tell you that there will be two categories–graphic design and video. Winners will share $20,000 in prize money and the winning graphic design entry will appear in a full-page ad in Metropolis while the winning video entry will be featured on metropolismag.com and Architecture 2030’s website.
Metropolis has had a long-standing relationship with Ed Mazria. In the October 2003 issue, the cover story Turning Down the Global Thermostat introduced the Santa Fe architect’s assessment of his own as profession as both the culprit and the solution to America’s energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

More information on Face It will be released soon…stay tuned!
