At the 2011 ABIC Conference, Steven presented a thought-provoking cross section of current work by Studio 9 that implements his on-going research in the concept of Adaptive Performance Architecture. The presentation, attended by practicing professionals from across Canada and various other professionals working in the building and construction industry, presented an atypical collation of contemporary socio-cultural events that influence today’s architecture.

The presentation proved to be a fun and passion-driven  interactive discussion about executing built environments that attempt to harmonize contemporary built environments with our grand ecosystem. Specifically calling into analysis are the performance-based projects in the South Central Kootenays and Northern BC which are meeting and exceeding ‘Performance Rating Systems’ such as LEED Homes, Net Zero, and Energuide.
