David Gottfried: Living a Green Life
Martin Flaherty

David Gottfried's career path has taken a unique arc. He began his professional career as a developer in the 'go-go '80's,' chasing after money and the trappings of success. Then in the late 1980's, he had an epiphany that changed his life and influenced an entire industry. Realizing that a system was needed to codify and encourage environmental design, he founded the U.S. Green Building Council and World Green Building Council.

David spoke with us about the green building movement and shared his thoughts on what he calls his second epiphany, Greening Your Life. It is an idea that enables us to assess how we live our lives, treat each other and behave towards our planet. Click here to listen

Andres Duany: Building and Rebuilding
Kevin Salwen

It has been 25 years since Andres Duany and his colleagues brought the concept of new urbanism into the American community, with Seaside, Fla. But the architect is far from resting on his laurels. Partner at his firm Duany-Plater-Zyberk in Miami and founder of the Congress for a New Urbanism, he's working with communities and cities across the country to deal with these intriguing issues: How do you fit 50 million new households into America in the next 20 years while wrestling with density issues, NIMBY, environmentalism and the rest?

He came to Greenbuild to speak with no powerpoint and no prepared speech, telling me later, 'I like to response to the needs of the audience.' In this 25-minute interview with us, he discusses the ties and conflicts between new urbanists and the environment, as well as how the rebuilding of hurricane-ravaged Mississippi is tops on his list of projects.

Bob Fox: Designing a new New York
Kevin Salwen

Bob Fox has a vision for New York: one with plenty of view, wonderful indoor air and energy efficiency to die for. He's developing that vision in the center of Manhattan, at One Bryant Park, the new Bank of America tower that will feature floor-to-ceiling glass for sunlight, individual heating controls and will recycle all rainwater and waste water. In fact, the building is aiming to receive LEED Platinum certification for design, a first for a skyscraper.

At the Greenbuild show, I had the opportunity to slow Bob down for this 20 minute Podcast to talk about the building, his vision for a greener New York and even ways to redesign the subways to create a more efficient system. For more, listen here.
