Principal Architect, AIM Associates

George’s early career experience of working with scientists and engineers designing some of the first biotech pharmaceutical laboratories instilled in him the enthusiasm for collaborative team design that is essential for sophisticated design in our complex world. His architectural firm has focused on the leading edge of green and deep energy efficiency for new and existing commercial, institutional and residential projects. His work is based on cost effectively using the best-suited technology. He aims for every project to be on the path to zero-net energy. George has collaborated with researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and the Building Science Group at UC Berkeley. He has provided technical support for cities, school districts and architectural firms. He walked his talk by remodeling his 1940’s energy-hog live/work building for deep energy efficiency. It was the first in California to meet the Thousand Home Challenge.
George earned a Bachelor of Architecture from New York’s Pratt Institute in 1972 and was also educated in Physics and Chemistry at Purdue University. He is a Registered Architect in New York and California.
