A Clear Vision: An Equitable Planet 2 of 2
Dennis Wilde is a Principal at Gerding Edlen Development and and is a nationally respected green building expert and helped create the Sustainable Solutions division of GEDI. Mr. Wilde has more than 20 years of experience in urban planning and design, and has been active in construction and real estate development since 1980. Mr. Wilde, who joined GEDI in 1997, is responsible for feasibility studies, management of the pre-construction and construction process, tenant improvement coordination and overall project management. One such idea is neighborhood-based systems called EcoDistricts.
In this interview, he talks about how can reduce consumption and address the need for thinking of close loop systems. Very narrowed silo-ing thinking needs to be replaced by wholistic ways of thinking and de-centralized (appropriately scaled) systems.
