#IntDesignerChat Jan. 25 Topic: Green Design and Good Design

24 Jan

Designed by Barcelona-based Nancy Robbins Design Studio

This Tuesday let’s co-create, share, and showcase our best green practices, tools, and stories and learn about ideas for sustainable action.

Green design is design that goes beyond being just efficient, attractive, on time and on budget. It is a design that cares about how such goals are achieved, about its effect on people and on the environment. An environmentally responsible professional makes a commitment to constantly try to find ways to diminish design’s impact on the world around us. It is also a smart way of doing business: sustainable design is the fastest growing segment of our industry.1
