Published on

Michelle Kaufmann will talk about a quest for simplicity as a core component to a mission of making thoughtful, sustainable design accessible.

She will talk about her work in prefabrication, design-build, green homes and sustainable communities. Rethinking not only what we make and how we make it, but also redesigning the design process itself is key to the future of architecture and sustainability. Innovations in this category are abundant and exciting, and with strategic focus can help us all to have more quality, less clutter and simpler lives.
