Earth Day, All Day, Every Day
Earth Day was April 22, but that doesn’t mean we stopped thinking about our beloved planet. To acknowledge and celebrate the environment, Sasaki designers from all disciplines presented quick presentations on sustainability, offering a unique glimpse into each individual’s perspective on the topic. The result was a fun and engaging event with a breadth of ideas too inspiring to keep to ourselves.
For her Earth Day presentation, Sasaki architect Emily Goldenberg shared her thesis research on growing populations and the significant increase in dense, informal settlements around the globe. Understanding how to accommodate these densities and settlements, as well as design for future growth, is a significant concern. In addition to her research, Emily shared design ideas and projects that test solutions for these populations.
