Hello everyone! As you probably know, several of us here at EV Studio have been very involved in the organization of this year’s Natural Talent Design Competition. I just wanted to remind you all about the Awards Event for the competition which will occur a week from today on Thursday August 7th, 2008 from 5:30 – 8pm at the Wynkoop Brewery in LoDo! Our five finalist teams will be presenting their projects along with a presentation on sustainability in the Urban Fabric of LoDo and a Keynote Speaker. The prizes will be awarded following the presentations at the event and there will be food, drinks and networking opportunities as well!!!
Tickets for the event can be purchased in advance at the following link http://www.usgbccolorado.com/USGBCCONaturalTalentDesignCompetition.html
Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door and include the first drink. There are USGBC Member and Student discounts available as well.
The Natural Talent Design Competition is a national design competition that is organized through the Emerging Green Builders arm of the U.S. Green Building Council. Each local chapter organizes the local competition including a local project and chooses a winner that is then sent to compete nationally at the Greenbuild Convention in November. The competition provides an applied learning experience to emerging professionals to gain experience with integrated design, sustainability and innovation. This year’s project is a seven story addition to The Alliance Center which is a Multi-tenant Non-profit center currently housing 30 non-profit groups and providing the spaces and services that encourage collaboration and communication between those organizations. Entries to the competition will showcase the latest cutting-edge sustainable technologies and principles, and must consider the design’s impact on the surrounding revitalized urban historic district and the property’s existing historic building. The projects utilize the latest ideas and innovations in sustainable design and strive for measures of sustainability.

I encourage all of you to attend the event and support the talents of our emerging professionals and sustainable design in Colorado. We have invited the press and would like to extend this invitation to any members of the press who are interested in the event. We are also seeking corporate sponsorships for the event.
Please contact Elicia if interested in sponsorship to discuss the benefits of corporate sponsorship and so that participation in the event can be arranged prior to the event.
