Continuing Education lecture and live webcast

NATURALNESS: DESIGN IN THE ANTHROPOCENE

View Livestream Schedule

TOPIC

When it's all gone, what will you build with?

Today we live in the Anthropocene, a period in which human activity has become the dominant influence on the environment. Nature isn't what it used to be, and, in this lecture, we will explore the complicated relationship between the natural and man-made worlds. What is really happening around us and how does material selection play a role in the outcome?

Join us in person or online for one of two livestreamed sessions and better understand the complexity in the "real" versus "fake" quandary.
