Design Roads to a One Planet Economy: Art Center lecture

green buildings

How do European, American and Asian approaches to green design differ - and what we should learn from each other? Will technology save us, or is a social revolution more important? I'm giving a lecture on this topic at Art Center, in Pasadena, on 5 June - and I'm told there will be a lively debate. My talk accompanies an exhibition (curated by Gloria Gerace with the support of Vitra) called Open House: Architecture and Technology for Intelligent Living. The picture above for a Seoul Commune designed by Mass Studies, is one of the show's highlights. Before you make a joke about it, I will: The lecture takes place inside the Wind Tunnel. Windy or not, the event is free and is open to all, so do please come. Tuesday 5 June, 7.30pm, Art Center, California. For detrails phone +1.626.396.4254 or email leslie.marcus@artcenter.edu
