Please welcome guest speaker Tim McGee to the Interdisciplinary Studies Department's course, Science and Sustainable Design.
Tim will discuss the concept of Life-Centered Design.
From Tim: "I’m the founder of LikoLab, a consultancy that seeks to shape the future of products and services that renew and engage our relationship to nature. Previously, I was one of the first biologists to spearhead bio-inspired design research at IDEO, where I developed new techniques to gather insights and led the creation of IDEO Nature Cards. I pioneered the concept of Life-Centered Design, and taught sustainable design at MCAD university. I have provided insight to Fortune 100 companies seeking to be inspired by biological performance, resilience, and sustainability. A focus of my recent work has been the development and growth of Biophilic Design, helping to build the Biophilic Design initiative at the International Living Future Institute, and expand those ideas from architecture into product design with my clients."
