The practice of living system design, a lecture by William Reed

The Boston Society of Architects lecture series on architecture and the built environment illuminates the ways in which all of us shape the design of our neighborhoods and cities, and the profound impact design has on our communities and the way in which we live.

William Reed AIA, a nationally recognized sustainability expert and architect at the Integrative Design Collaborative, Regenesis and Delving Deeper, spoke on developing a whole-systems design process that lifts building and community planning into full integration and co-evolution with living systems in the region. Reed is a founding board member of the U.S. Green Building Council and co-author of The Integrative Design Guide to Green Building: Redefining the Practice of Sustainability.
