and welcome to the New Year 2009!
Looking forward to an inspiring year of new and vital information relating to all things GREEN!
I took a break from my blog to pursue a fabulous class from September to December cleverly entitled Materialogical at Parsons The New School here in New York City. Matthew Hoey, a designer himself, taught the class. It was mind-opening and amazing. Not only did he cover eco-friendly materials, but really evaluated the pros and cons to both "green" and synthetic materials, manufacturing and design techniques. Hoey covered everything from interior design to fashion to architecture. It will be offered again starting in February of 2009. I highly recommend it for all design professionals! Amazing on-location field trips to museums, design studios, guest speakers in the field of "green" design, and innovative buildings right here in New York City.
For more information on the class, visit Parsons website and look for Materialogical PCID 1110
and here is the link to Matthew Hoey's website, Materialogical, outlining by catagory the plethora of amazing materials that are out there being developed and in use today:
What better way to start the New Year than with enrolling in a class to expand your knowledge in the "field of green" !
Cheers to an ever-evolving 2009!
