Bill’s Design Talks
A new series of design conversations with Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum Director Bill Moggridge
David Owen and Our Green Metropolis, June 24th, 6:30 – 8:00pm, Cooper Hewitt Design Museum – 2 East 91st Street New York, NY
New York City is widely considered an ecological nightmare, a wasteland of concrete and high-rises, diesel fumes and traffic jams, garbage and pollution. But in the groundbreaking work of contrarian environmental thinking that is Green Metropolis, David Owen declares New York City as the greenest community in America. In Green Metropolis, David Owen conceives a new environmentalism, turning what we think we know about the environment on its head and re-envisioning a sustainable future that looks less like Thoreau’s cabin at Walden Pond and more like the populous megacities of Hong Kong or New York. Bill Moggridge and David Owen will be joined in conversation by Andrea Lipps, curatorial assistant for National Design Triennial: Why Design Now? and upcoming exhibition, Critical Mass.
Green Metropolis will be available for sale and signing.
$15 / $10 members, students and seniors.
