Ever met Bill Reed? He’s a bit of a celebrity in the world of sustainable design. In this free lecture Bill demonstrates the integrative design process through a series of case studies.
Register at this link for complimentary access to Bill’s “Integrative Design Process“, including an hour of video, a PDF copy of the slides, additional resources, and access to the discussion board where participants can discuss the material.
An integrative process consistently produces cost-effective solutions, higher performance, healthier living systems, elegant design, reduced time to market, and is a heck of a lot more fun and less frustrating. So why is it the exception rather than the rule? This course employs case studies to illustrate the integrative process—with its focus on purpose, discovery, and interrelationships—while demonstrating its inherent efficiency, effectiveness… and excitement!
