The Net Positive Water Design Series was inspired by buildings such as the Bullitt Center and the Omega Center, and the San Diego based architects behind them. Over the next few months, we will host guest speakers from City of Santa Monica and City of San Francisco to discuss how those municipalities are leading the way in Net Positive Water conversation in California. Will San Diego be next? Join us to learn what it takes to deign and construct a building that uses less water than it consumes.
