Arch. Lira Luis, the first Filipino protege of Frank Lloyd Wright since 1932, is currently in Manila. Today, I had the privilege of meeting her at the seminar titled "Follow the LEED" held at the UST Student Center where she was the guest speaker. (LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.)
Using a compelling powerpoint presentation, Arch. Luis enthusiastically shared with her SRO audience her views on promoting design and construction practices that increase profitability while reducing the negative environmental impacts of buildings and improving occupant health and well-being.
