'Looking to the Future' at the Evanston History Center

Architect Nathan Kipnis will speak about how he designed Evanston’s first platinum LEED home, beginning at 7 p.m. on Jan. 25 at the Evanston History Center, 225 Greenwood St.

Mr. Kipnis, FAIA, will discuss the challenges involved with creating this uniquely designed home that uses 75% less energy than a standard home. He will also speak about his evolving philosophy for sustainable and resilient design, at both the building and community scale. Mr. Kipnis’ body of design work has consistently looked to the future by starting with a thorough understanding of how historic buildings responded climatically to their context, and then integrating modern technology and design concepts to create ultra-high-efficiency buildings.

Mr. Kipnis’ practice, Kipnis Architecture + Planning, is based in Evanston and is celebrating its 25th year. His architectural work has been extensively published locally and nationally. There will be a wine-and-cheese reception at 6:30 p.m. Reservations: or
