Join us for a UNITE to remember when an expert panel discusses sustainability as a design principle. Sustainable design practices are not just a way of designing, but a way to reduce negative impacts on the environment for a better future. Designers worldwide are rapidly developing and adopting new sustainable practices and encourage the design community to learn more about the movement. We’ll cover themes such as the challenges with sustainable design, sourcing materials, upcycling, and reusing materials.

Speakers:

  • Alan Scott • YR&G – Moderator
  • Scott Hamlin • Looptworks
  • Carissa Mylin • IIDA Oregon; SERA Architects
  • Taryn Johnson • The Joinery

 

 

UNITE is our evening panel discussion series with themes at the intersection of design and just about everything else. We set a theme and curate 4 panelists that each cover a different facet of that topic — our goal is to bring together a broad community of diverse people around design. The event begins with mingling and networking, after the panel discussion there is a question and answer segment that is always interesting.
