AIA Seattle’s 2023 (Virtual) Climate Summit: Decarbonization for Health Equity & Community Resilience May 8-9, 2023, 9am-2pm 

Our very own Alex Rolluda will be one of the keynote speakers for AIA Seattle’s 2023 (Virtual) Climate Summit: Decarbonization for Health Equity & Community Resilience!

From the event page: 

The increased urgency of our climate crisis and global health emergencies demand responses that recognize decarbonization is directly correlated to health equity and community resilience.

Through examining 1) indoor air quality and the right to positive health outcomes; 2) adaptive reuse strategies, the circular economy, and electrification; and 3) case studies demonstrating what “good” looks like through responsible building in projects and practice, this year’s thought leadership summit will take a systems-approach to explore high-impact decarbonization strategies that nurture our communities and ecosystems. 

  • How do we redefine “standard of care” to ensure climate-smart solutions?

  • What does it look like to co-create with community to achieve our goals?

  • How do we design resilient and adaptable buildings that can evolve?

  • Ultimately, how do we leverage our shared responsibility to support a sustainable future?


Register here before the final deadline Friday, May 5, at 5pm.

PDS presents: Building Resilience and Post-Disaster Analysis with Jess Lentner | January 18, 2023 at 12pm (virtual)

In October 2022, Rolluda Architects Project Architect Jess Lentner deployed on a week-long volunteer mission with USACE Infrastructure Division to assist with Hurricane Ian Relief in Lee County, Florida. As a Registered Architect and Safety Assessor, Jess assisted with performing ATC-45 Rapid Evaluation Safety Assessments on over 7,000 structures impacted by hurricane-force winds, storm surge, and flooding in Lee County. Assessment Teams provide information on access and hazards present to local building departments so they can assist with getting their communities restored and operating again as quickly as possible.


On Wednesday, January 18th at 12pm, RAI Professional Development Series presents “Building Resilience and Post-Disaster Analysis with Jess Lentner.” During this virtual presentation, Jess will be sharing her experiences seeing building and systems damage with RAI designers so we may continue to produce structurally, economically, and environmentally resilient projects. If you are interested in attending the presentation as part of our Rolluda Community, please reach out to Matt Purvis at
