Five questions about our future.

| May/June 2009

  • David Orr oversaw the design and construction of the $7.2 million Adam Joseph Lewis Center for Environmental Studies at Oberlin College, described by The New York Times as "the most remarkable" of a new generation of college buildings and by the U.S. Department of Energy as one of 30 "milestone buildings" of the 20th century. The solar-powered building shares its excess energy with the community.

Pliny Fisk, Fellow, Center for Housing and Urban Development; Fellow, Sustainable Urbanism Center for Healthy Systems Design; Co-director, Center for Maximum Potential Building Systems

I am also very curious what will happen to housing over the next decade, even if the situation will change into worse I am not scared because I found a http://www.farmerbrown.com/ company that provides dependable and affordable roofing insurance to contractors. Hopefully we won`t have another housing bubble that would reduce the fair value of home prices by more than 8%.
