Future of sustainability1

Sustainability in design refers to the creation of ecologically responsible, financially feasible, and socially equitable products, systems, and environments. Designers and architects have a crucial role in promoting sustainability by considering the entire lifecycle of a product, minimizing negative environmental and social impacts, and using environmentally friendly materials.

In this seminar, Dr. Iman Ibrahim, an award-winning architect, will introduce us to emerging trends in sustainable design such as biophilic, biomimicry, and parametric design. She will emphasize the important role that designers and architects play in promoting sustainability in their work and will provide practical methods for achieving this. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of sustainability in design as a comprehensive strategy for creating products, systems, and environments that are both ethical and commercially viable.
