Green Design as (Un)usual,
Van Alen Institute.
Call it green design, ecodesign or sustainable design, it’s come a long way since we first started giving it names. Evolving from outlier to, arguably, mainstream, where is the field now and where is it headed? This is the closing question posed in the new book, Sustainable Design: A Critical Guide. To explore this question, Metropolis Magazine Editor-in-Chief Susan S. Szenasy will moderate a panel discussion with architect and Sustainable Design author David Bergman, Terreform ONE Co-Founder and Planetary ONE partner Mitchell Joachim, and NYC Department of Design and Construction Director of Creative Services Victoria Milne.
