Help Me Do My Homework (For a Cause)


What do you think are those revolutionizing moments in the history of sustainable design? With all the recent focus on green construction and green product design, what (who) is changing the world as we know it? These are the questions I'm trying to tackle in...err..5,500 words or less. And who better to help me, then a pool of knowledgeable treehuggers. The essay will be included in a book produced by Tricycle, which manufactures digital carpet samples for companies like Interface (and saves tons of carpet samples from landfill every year). All proceeds for the book go to Architecture for Humanity (AFH), one of our favorite non-profit organizations. AFH helps rebuild towns like Tsunami-ravaged Kirinda, Sri Lanka, pictured. AFH founder Cameron Sinclair was recently in the news. Learn more about Tricycle here. Would really appreciate your thoughts—best case scenario, with facts/links to back them up.
