Roddy Langmuir is an Architect and Practice Leader at Cullinan Studios in London. Roddy visited Boise in March and presented Natural Beauty in the Built Environment-Exploring Trends in Sustainable Design and Planing at the Idaho Environmental Forum. We were fortunate to get Roddy in the studio to tell our listeners about sustainable design and building. Roddy’s work designing structures with unique uses of wood is a relevant topic for Building a Greener Idaho and our State’s active timber industry.
