Metal Architecture at METALCONLive! is kicking off a new series of webinars aimed at showcasing projects that illustrate the beauty, durability, efficiency, and sustainability of metal. The first live session is scheduled for next Wednesday, January 13 at 1:00 EST and will explore Civitas and the role of metal in meeting a zero carbon world by guest speaker and renowned architect, Barry Yoakum. So what is Civitas? According to its creator and owner, Mr. Yoakum explains, “Civitas is poised to become the first certified zero energy/zero carbon single-family home in the Americas. Positioned overlooking the Mississippi River, the project involves its site fully, connecting interior and exterior and private property with community space. It is a case study house that focuses on balancing the challenges of cultural norms, climatic concerns, resiliency, and adaptability.”
