About the Talk: There is always something more to learn about the practice of sustainable design. Perhaps one of the best opportunities to learn--and shape--best practices is to engage with the makers of design tools. In this talk, we get a breezy and deep overview of the thinking employed by Autodesk to enable sustainable design.

Co-authored WorldChanging: A User’s Guide to the 21st Century.
