The time for “Do less harm” has passed. It’s time for the beginning of being; the beginning of a Living Future. Join us next April for Living Future 2015. We’ll explore a genuine sense of place and community as the bellwether of truly restorative design.

Creating the Exquisite through Natural Inspiration 2.0 – Place Based Workshop

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

As architects and designers with strong foundations of sustainable design, we now have the opportunity to explore the connection to nature at levels beyond the strategies and systems that we are familiar with, and potentially develop a new approach towards Place. This workshop will provide a lens for looking at nature as the measure of place-based environmental responses, then abstracting and translating it into a design element. The workshop format draws inspiration from the Exquisite Corpse, a technique invented by Surrealists by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled.
