William McDonough will deliver the Dwell on Design keynote on June 24 in Los Angeles.
In anticipation, Dwell magazine is featuring a Q&A with Bill and writer Alissa Walker that begins this way–
Next year, William McDonough’s revolutionary book Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things, which he co-authored with Dr. Michael Braungart, will turn ten years old. During that decade McDonough has emerged as a leader of the sustainable design movement, both as an advocate for creating more responsible products through his Cradle to Cradle certification process, and as an architect at William McDonough + Partners who set out to reinvent buildings and is now rethinking the way we design cities. At this year’s Dwell on Design he’ll be talking about how designers can change the language of sustainability by creating work that is focused on being “more good” not just “less bad.”
