Susan S. Szenasy, Editor In Chief, METROPOLIS Magazine

“In good company: architects work to green the built environment at every scale”

Susan’s presentation will show the many different things that are being done today, some prototypes, some working projects, some emphasize social sustainability even as they push for environmental sustainability. It will be a lively overview of today’s far-reaching green activities.

Since 1986 she has lead the magazine through twenty-one years of landmark design journalism, achieving domestic and international recognition. Believing that design and architecture are humanist activities, Susan is committed to education. As a longtime professor of Design Ethics at New York’s Parsons School of Design she has worked to instill the values of responsible sustainability on the next generation.

She has been honored with two IIDA Presidential Commendations and is an ASID distinguished speaker on the topic of ethics in design, as well as an honorary member of the American Society for Landscape Architects.
