Green architect at Penobscot Marine Museum
Searsport — Matthew O’Malia, architect and partner of G O Logic, will speak Thursday, Oct. 3, at 7 p.m. in Penobscot Marine Museum’s Stephen Phillips Memorial Library, 11 Church St.
G O Logic’s many awards include the Citation for Excellence in Architecture from AIA New England. O’Malia will discuss the concepts and details of the highly-insulated passive house building. The cost of construction versus long-term energy savings will be explored in order to evaluate the payback period of the investment and how insulation performs as an investment given the cost of energy inflation over time.
G O Logic designed the Belfast Area Co-housing Community and TerraHaus, a dormitory at Unity College. G O Logic provides a comprehensive problem-solving approach to the design and construction of quality, sustainable, zero-energy buildings.
Tickets in advance are $10, $8 for museum members, and will be $15/$12 at the door; to purchase tickets, call 548-2529. For information on upcoming events, visit penobscotmarinemuseum.org.
