Discover three ambitious studios that introduce socially and ecologically resilient ideas for building – from conception to completion and beyond. Dive into hospitable habitats, the post-reuse potential of materials and empathetic spaces that consider both people and the biosphere.
Garner insights into the effects building with mass timber will have on interiors, how designers can help grow the biomaterial movement, and what the B Corp buzz is all about.
Learn from global industry leaders how hotels and eateries can extend their zero-waste philosophies, beyond food and packaging, to interior design?
Take visual and conceptual inspiration from the ways in which fashion, food and electronics are dealing with the concept of sustainability.
