Special Compostmodern 09 Webcast
A special thanks to Mohawk for playing an active role in promoting and producing Compostmodern webcast events across the country.
Compostmodern is fertile ground for sustainability. Presented by the San Francisco chapter of AIGA and the AIGA Center for Sustainable Design (CFSD), this interdisciplinary conference explores the range of design thinking necessary to create a socially and ecologically responsible society. Designers, manufacturers and business leaders come together to find inspiration, share knowledge and explore real world opportunities for transforming products, industries and lives.
Compostmodern 09 will be held at the Herbst Theatre in San Francisco on Saturday, February 21. For the first time, the event will also be webcast live (9:00 AM to 5:00 PM PST) and will be available for 90 days following, encouraging online participation and satellite events at AIGA chapters and educational institutions everywhere.
This year’s conference demonstrates how sustainable solutions converge as design, ecology, social activism, business, and economics intersect. Speakers include Eames Demetrios of Eames Office, Allan Chochinov of Core 77, climate strategist Michel Gelobter, John Bielenberg and Pam Dorr of Project M and the HERO Housing Resource in Alabama, Emily Pilloton of Project H Design, and Autodesk Sustainable Design Program Manager Dawn Danby. GreenBiz editor and sustainability author Joel Makower will reprise his role as emcee.
The San Francisco Chapter of AIGA, the professional association for design, represents over 1,300 designers, illustrators and artists in the greater San Francisco Bay Area.
The AIGA Center for Sustainable Design (CFSD) is dedicated to providing designers with a wide range of information regarding sustainable business practice. Through case studies, interviews, resources and discourse, this site will encourage and support designers as they incorporate sustainable thinking into their professional lives.
