Gerard Lee, AIA LEED AP, (founding principal of Gerard Lee Architects) was recently interviewed by reporter Grace Tzeng for the weekly newspaper AsianWeek. The theme of the article centered around sustainable architecture and Gerard Lee's involvement and contributions as an architect towards this environmental movement that global citizens are witnessing. Being able to contribute to the article and the sustainable movement in a meaningful manner is part and parcel of the firms’ commitment to sustainability and the advancement of “green” design and business practices. Members of the firm are happy to help the news media inform and educate the public about environmentally friendly and sustainable methods to design buildings and rehabilitate homes. Participating and providing their time, knowledge and experience to Grace (and AsianWeek) in her research efforts was just a small part of the firm's sustainable efforts.
