Our friends at Architecture for Humanity are hosting an Open Mic session at Dwell on Design in Los Angeles next week. AFH put out the call to find 7 innovators and designers to give quick 7 minute presentations on the topic of regeneration.
The tsunami in Japan and the quake in Haiti have us all thinking about how we can best use architecture and design to heal the wounds of natural disasters. That's the theme we'll take up in this Pecha Kucha-style hour of design thinking, one that provides seven provocative takes on what design can do to better the world.
We're on the hunt for designers of all stripes and statuses to share their visions of how design can reshape, reform and regenerate places and communities when disaster strikes.
We answered the call and have been chosen as one of the 7 presenters! Please join me at Dwell's Design conference and expo June 24 - 26 at the LA Convention Center. The Architecture for Humanity Open Mic event is on Saturday at 4pm on the Design Innovation Stage.
