I recently graduated with a concentration on sustainable architecture and design from NYU Gallatin School of Individualized Study. Architecture and design are fundamental to our everyday lives, and through my studies, I discovered the importance of good design as a practice. My goal is to create architecture and design that is beneficial to the environment and for the future of the human race. Our current design processes and methods of construction render the practice unfeasible in the long term. We are designing for planned obsolescence, which is trashing our planet and creating a global crisis. The imminent truth of global warming, pollution, and depletion of natural resources, proposes nothing but a challenge for the future generations of architects and designers such as myself that need to explore the mistakes of the past to envision a brighter and more sustainable future. Good architecture and design is something that actively ameliorates the conditions of the humans that inhabit and interact with it every day while also taking our planet’s integrity into consideration.
