We Are What We Build Sally Henderson Lecture on Green Design

We Are What We Build Sally Henderson Lecture on Green Design

  • Arthur Satz Auditorium, New York School of Interior Design (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The built environment impacts health at every scale that we design and build in. This understanding has magnified in recent years with a particular focus on interior design, material health and the transparency of products we specify. This lecture and panel discussion will highlight the opportunities for designers, owners and product manufacturers to join the transparency movement today and begin making a positive difference tomorrow. Breeze Glazer, Program Director of Healthcare Design at NYSID and Sustainable Healthcare Leader, at Perkins+Will will start the evening with a brief lecture on healthy materials, the transparency movement and the Precautionary List.

A moderated discussion will follow with panelists sharing a range of perspectives, insights and lessons learned including; 
Mary Holt, Executive VP, Creative Director of Carnegie Fabrics
Arjav Shah Interior Project Designer, Perkins+Will 
Ethan Lu Program Director of the NYSID MPS in Sustainable Interior Environments Program.

The Sally Henderson Lecture on Green Design is an annual event created to honor the memory of NYSID faculty member, Sally Henderson, who developed the College’s first course in green design.

More about the Transparency project:
Too often, some of the design profession's most impactful decisions are made in the dark, with little material information available when specifying a product. But designing healthy buildings means specifying healthier building products. For years, designers at Perkins+Will have facilitated informed decisions by working with clients and manufacturers to find alternatives that use the fewest possible toxic substances. We help our fellow design professionals do the same through Transparency. transparency.perkinswill.com

The free, universally accessible database includes the Precautionary List — a compilation of the most ubiquitous and problematic substances that people encounter every day in the built environment. It allows design professionals to search for key substances and chemicals of concern using filters like project type, product type, and health and environmental impacts.

What is white light? When is white light not white? This lecture demo will explore and compare the differences between color temperature, “tuneable” white light, and color changing LEDs. The ways in which those choices affect the color of materials used in designing a space will be demonstrated. The angle of the light and how it impacts how we see texture will also be explored. The end result will show how color and angle can enhance the mood and create a “wow factor.”
