The New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects instated Margaret Castillo, principal at Helpern Architects, as its new president last night, the organization announced. Castillo, who is known for her expertise in “green” building and in historic restoration and renovation projects at Helpern, takes the helm from Anthony Schirripa, chairman of New York-based design firm Mancini Duffy, for the 2011-2012 year. Her goal for the year, she said, “is a net zero New York City… through design we can create buildings and communities that use our natural resources wisely, operate efficiently, and produce a better environment for the future. For architects, energy is a design topic, not a technology topic.” TRD
