Sustainable Materials Tour from Design for Freedom
August 6 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm$20 – $25
Nora Rizzo, Sustainable Materials Director at Grace Farms, will tour the SANAA-designed River building and Barns to highlight ethical and sustainable material sourcing. In buildings worldwide, glass, brick, timber, stone, and copper are vulnerable to being produced with forced labor, and this tour will offer guidance for asking questions about material sourcing as a professional or consumer.
The tour includes an introduction to the Design for Freedom initiative as well as complimentary tea in the Pavilion. Participants will also receive a copy of the Design for Freedom Report.
