Economics of Change
Autopoiesis LLC is part of a Bullitt Foundation and MacArthur Foundation supported research team working to catalyze the investment shift toward a restorative built environment. This long-term project is engaging appraisers, lenders, developers, and owners to build transparent, open source models of ecosystem service and social value creation in buildings, neighborhoods, and cities.
Tribal Renewable Energy
Autopoiesis worked with a tribe to establish a Renewable Energy Development Authority to allow tribal ownership and economic benefit from solar, wind, biomass, and other renewable resources. We also helped secure federal seed funding for the Authority.
Autopoiesis LLC helped a leading rural Community Development Entity secure an $85 million allocation of federal New Markets Tax Credits, allowing hundreds of thousands of acres to be transitioned to FSC certified forestry while stabilizing rural communities.
Blue Marble Evaluation
We served as sustainable designer and project manager for the largest leichlehmbau (light-straw clay) structure in North America. The project was featured on the cover of Portland Spaces in 2009.
