Lecture by Craig Pocock
An Anecdotal walk through Sustainability
As designers, whether it be an Architect, Engineer, or Landscape Architect, the decisions you make have a profound intergenerational influence on a community’s wellbeing.
Those impacts can be a social, economic, education or carbon and it is up to key decisions the designer makes to whether that is a positive or negative impact, either way it is often enduring and intergeneration impact.
Craig Pocock will use projects from India, Palestine, Jordan, America and New Zealand to illustrate both the positive and negative impacts design has had on communities ranging including carbon, water, social and economic. Craig will openly talk about both the positive and negative impacts of projects he has been involved in and what he has become to believe to be the role and ethical responsibilities of designers towards community wellbeing.
