Sustainable architecture: nature is the best technology

Who says the environment has to be depressing? An inspiring dialogue to explore smart approaches to sustainability through architecture.

Award-winning public speaker, organic architect and expert in green building Eric Corey Freed joined in dialogue with distinguished science and data journalist Elisabetta Tola, to explore smart approaches to sustainability through architecture. As one of the world’s leading sustainability thinkers, the 11-time author delighted participants with his witty approach to discussing how nature-based technology can be used in buildings, offering solutions to grow our future through innovation.
