He is the founder of buildGREEN(or)die, Valerio Dewalt Train’s in-house sustainability team dedicated to the planning and design of high performing and environmentally responsible projects, and is the co-founder of the Living Building Challenge Collaborative in Chicago. His leadership has been central to the Aloft Hotel in Chicago’s Streeterville neighborhood, an office building in University Research Park in Madison, Wisconsin, and a new hotel development in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He received an AIA Honor Award for the Gordon Parks Arts Hall at the University of Chicago Laboratory School, and was cited in Engineering News Record’s Top 20 Under 40 for his advocacy of sustainability within the architectural field.
