Architect Busby, marketer Rennie debate cost of green building

October 6th, 2010 · 13 Comments

The Globe asked me to bring together architect Peter Busby and condo marketer Bob Rennie to talk about building green.

Although the two have worked together on more than one project, Peter is a passionate crusader for green buildings and he keeps pushing forward with new strategies all the time, while Bob has come to have his doubts about some aspects of green building: expensive, not actually very green, and something that burdens consumers with more debt — which makes them work more, drive more, and burn more greenhouse gases.

Here are the results of that debate — currently going on in other forms between other developers, architects, city planners and marketers as the building industry struggles to figure out what green building actually means.
