Transforming [the] Material: Global Challenges, Local Opportunities

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Red List is transforming the design and construction industries as project teams make demands of global manufacturers and their supply chains. However, each LBC project has a uniquely local context for materials decision-making and a unique matrix of barriers and opportunities. This presentation will explore the barriers and opportunities for projects within their local PLACE + COMMUNITY. Presentations from designers and manufacturers will relate the Red List to global and local issues and explore solutions for streamlining the materials specification and documentation process. Models for design team/manufacturer collaboration will be discussed and recommendations for industry transformation will be proposed.
