The fifth event in the Mixed Greens series features Roger Frechette, Director of MEP Engineering and Russell Gilchrist, Director of Technical Architecture at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP.

Mixed Greens, a lecture series on sustainable design and skyscraper urbanism, features leading architects, engineers, and environmental consultants whose work in Europe, Asia, and the U.S. represents the state-of-the-art in high-performance high-rise design and green-building technology.

The series is a collaboration between the Skyscraper Museum and the New York Academy of Sciences, and builds on the Museum's 2006 exhibition Green Towers for New York and the related lectures "Green Teams," available in a virtual archive at the Skyscraper Museum website.

Listen to the Science & the City podcast of curator and director Carol Willis's guided tour of the Skyscraper Museum exhibit Giants: The Twin Towers and the 20th Century.
