Part 1 of our two-part talk with architect, author, educator and consultant Tone Wheeler who has an abiding interest in environmentally sustainable design (ESD).
Tone is also a past chair of the AIA national environment committee & a past member of the sustainability committee.
He has taught extensively over the past 30 years, he has been on the faculty of 3 universities, is a sustainability advocate and frequent speaker at architectural conferences and seminars. he has been a judge on ABC TV ‘the new inventors’.
In this first interview, he discusses how every step in an architect’s work is broken: from the university education, to finding honest clients who understand the architectural process and value, to Councils and their ridiculous requirements, to consultants, to builders, the building commissioner, certifiers, and the whole box and dice.
