Public47 Architects created this model of Bridge Way Apartments.

Seattle Architecture Foundation will hold a free panel discussion titled “Resurgence Roundtable: Green Buildings” from 6 to 8 p.m. Nov. 14 at 1010 Western Ave. in Seattle.

The foundation said environmentally conscious architecture produces a lot of jargon and professional designations, including Living Buildings, LEED, Petal, Passive and Green.

The panel will explore three projects being built in Seattle. Scot Carr of Public47 Architects and Brett Phillips of Unico Properties will talk about Bridge Way Apartments. It aims to be the first multifamily project to be recognized by the Living Building Pilot Petal program, which would make it the most sustainable apartment project in the U.S.

Emily Doe will discuss Pike Passive, a multifamily building with retail in the Pike-Pine corridor, and Myer Harrell will talk about Watershed, an office building in Fremont. Doe and Harrell are with Weber Thompson.

The panel will discuss differences between the professional designations, and why they are important to the city and the planet.
