Keynote Speaker Lance Hosey will draw a complete picture of aesthetics, ecology and design based on his latest book, The Shape of Green. From products to cities, at every degree of scale, Hosey outlines a clear set of principles that integrates laws of good design into the necessary realm of sustainability. Hosey will answer the question, “Does going green change the face of design or only its content?” The answer integrates principles of good design into the vital needs of sustainable design. His philosophy and guidelines are firmly rooted in the belief that aesthetic attraction isn’t a superficial concern - it’s an environmental imperative. He believes that, “Beauty could save the planet.” Learn more about Hosey's Keynote here.
