Lance Hosey

Washington, DC

Architect and author Lance Hosey, FAIA, LEED AP, is Chief Sustainability
Officer with the global design leader RTKL. As one of the world’s largest
A/E companies, with a thousand people in twelve offices on three continents,
RTKL has significant reach and influence on the built environment. Lance is a
former Director with William McDonough + Partners and the former President &
CEO of the sustainability nonprofit GreenBlue. His latest book, 'The Shape of
Green: Aesthetics, Ecology, and Design' (Island Press, 2012), the first to
study the relationships between sustainability and beauty, has been
Amazon’s #1 bestseller for sustainable design. Lance has been featured in 'Metropolis' magazine’s “Next Generation” program and 'Architectural Record'’s “emerging architect” series, and he has been a Fellow of the Michael Kalil Endowment for Smart Design and a Resident of the Rockefeller Foundation’s Bellagio Center. Eco-pioneer John Elkington calls Lance “an inspirational guide to a future we can't wait to embrace,” and 'Builder' magazine says Lance “is on a crusade to revolutionize what it means to be sustainable.”
