PLEA is an organisation engaged in a worldwide discourse on sustainable architecture and urban design through annual international conferences, workshops and publications.
It has a membership of several thousand professionals, academics and students from over 40 countries.
Participation in PLEA activities is open to all whose work deals with architecture and the built environment, who share our objectives and who attend PLEA events.
PLEA stands for “Passive and Low Energy Architecture”, a commitment to the development, documentation and diffusion of the principles of bioclimatic design and the application of natural and innovative techniques for sustainable architecture and urban design.
PLEA serves as an open, international, interdisciplinary forum to promote high quality research, practice and education in environmentally sustainable design.
“Photography is the lens through which the public looks at architecture. Few have rivaled and none has exceeded the genius of Esto in capturing its lines, form, color and textures. Founded by Ezra Stoller (1915-2004), Esto is now home to a new generation of photographers headed by Ezra Stoller’s daughter, Erica Stoller. New York-area based but with a worldwide following, the Esto professionals have worked beyond the limits of translating architecture into two-dimensional images, creating work that excels as art in its own right”.
