Keynote Speaker: Michael Pawlyn
Architect, writer, TED speaker and Director at Exploration Architecture Limited
Michael Pawlyn will describe how conventional sustainable design will not be enough to address the planetary emergency. He will make the case for a new paradigm of regenerative design and will argue that looking more deeply into biology – particularly using biomimicry as a design tool – will reveal the solutions we need. He will illustrate the talk with projects that range from large-scale land restoration to urban design, regenerative buildings and a new approach to materials.
