William McDonough is an author, designer, architect, advisor and sustainability legend! It’s his belief that we can design buildings and environments that adapt and continuously improve over time.
At the event he explored his new ICEhouse™ (Innovation for the Circular Economy house), which aims to embody the design philosophies outlined in his recent books, The Upcycle: Beyond Sustainability—Designing for Abundance and Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things. The vision of McDonough is to create a future in which humanity actively enhances the earth through our building and designing, rather than simply reducing the damage we cause.
