Larry Scarpa interviewed by Leo DiCaprio

Rising media star? Larry Scarpa of Brooks + Scarpa is interviewed by Leo DiCaprio about 502 Colorado, a 44 unit building being labeled as the "first green affordable housing project in the country". Says the Architect’s Newspaper blog about the interview:

Whether or not that’s true, the building does include 200 solar panels on its rooftop, providing much of the building’s energy. DiCaprio doesn’t ask Scarpa about any of the 44-unit building’s other green elements (including strategic orientation, natural ventilation, co-generation, and recycled materials), but that’s okay, he’ll dream about it later. At least Scarpa gets to remind stubborn developers that building green can be cheaper than conventional building.
