DESIGNING A GREAT NEIGHBORHOOD: BEHIND THE SCENES AT HOLIDAY (USA, 2005, 54 min.)
Washington, D.C. Premiere The Wild Sage Co-housing Community project in Boulder, Colorado is a place where future residents participate in the design of their own neighborhood. The stated architectural goal at the Wild Sage site is a “zero emissions” neighborhood in which solar energy, energy efficiency, and changes in behavior eliminate the need for fossil fuels. This film shows the process of designing that neighborhood. Directed by David Wann. Produced by Greening America Productions.
Introduced by Elizabeth L. Wilkie, Associate Public Programs Coordinator, National Building Museum. Discussion with Susan Piedmont-Palladino, Lead Curator for the Museum’s “Green Community” exhibition, follows screening.
