Sustainability as a Driving Force for Design Innovation

Matt Fajkus
The University of Texas USA

The current climatic crisis has set new constraints upon all types of design, however it has also opened new opportunities for innovation, particularly at a time when most are willing to accept a design revolution, and actually expect a change in the status quo. In this turbulent setting, the research and design work of Matt Fajkus explores innovation in the relationship between structure, building skin, daylighting, and human interface, to affect a positive change through sustainable design.
