Global Sustainable Design
August 19 - September 5, 2019
Reception - Thursday, August 22, 5 -7pm
This exhibition contains works from students from the 2019 Global Sustainable Design course study abroad. Students traveled to Copenhagen, Denmark; Malmo, Sweden; and London, U.K. to experience firsthand practical approaches to sustainable design. The students were asked to explore current practices in sustainable design and then create works that could translate to the U.S. culturally. The focus is on challenging and changing existing attitudes, products, spaces, communications and communities as a positive step toward a greener, more ecologically balanced future.
