We are happy to announce that Ned Dodington will be speaking at this year’s Gulf Coast Green Symposium Healthy Communities – Vitality in Placemaking. Ned will be delivering a talk titled: Other Than Human; Notes on Anthro-Eccentric Design. The talk will focus on recent thinking about the importance of considering non-human agents in the design process. He will show-case leading-edge work in the field as well as “on-the-boards” projects for a forth-coming exhibition.

- See keynote speakers Jeff Speck in the morning and Mike Lydon in the afternoon!
- The 2015 Green Products Expo will feature the products and systems that bring cutting edge design ideas into the sustainable places where people live, work, learn and play. This year, gain access to more great ideas with live mini- presentations from innovative manufacturers.
