On April 23, BAGI will be piloting the first of a recurring segment, currently titled “The Arc of Sustainability.”   This segment is designed to talk to local architects and discuss their conceptions about sustainability early in their education and career, and how it has evolved over the years.

During this show, we will be sitting down with Doug Cooper from McKibben + Cooper Architects, to explore how sustainability has impacted his career.  This includes the early stages of his  education at Yale University, throughout his decorated career in Boise where he served as a founding member of the USGBC Idaho Chapter and has been consistently engaged in sustainable and high performance projects.

You can read more about Doug’s history and his current career on this firms website, http://www.mckibbencooper.com/
