The North Texas Sustainable Showcase Integrative Design, July 13
Event Description

Integrative design is a process that serves as the foundation to take us to the next and multiple levels beyond sustainability. True sustainability considers far more than siting, materials and efficiency. Designers, clients, and communities can be informed and inspired by engaging and integrating with the larger place, its culture, and the role it serves in the larger living system— in other words, the whole living ecosystem. This workshop will explain what integrative systems thinking is, how and why it works, and how to merge these concepts with your existing work.
