Homes and businesses alike require spaces that draw people out and bring nature in. This “silo-busting” approach works in all environments to help connect us to our natural surroundings in more inspiring—and fun—ways. We’ll start with short presentations, move into our team-ups, see what we create, and finish with presentations and a look at the exhibits that will keep the conversations going. This type of workshop challenges you to creatively envision space differently, while building something in a collaborative, most enjoyable way.

Our presenters:

  • Nicole Starnes Taylor, MAKE Design Studio, Principal/Architect, will focus on a study of vernacular buildings from around the world along with modern buildings that creatively blend inside/outside space.
  • Eric Peterson, Mech. Engineer & MBA Pinchot U, and Lauren Lark, MBA Pinchot U, OutDoor Office Company, will provide examples of innovative designs challenging the traditional office space.
  • Linda Hillesheim, BS Design/SBA/Ikebana International Seattle, will share the sustainable, mindful art of ikebana (Japanese flower arranging) as an element that brings nature into any environment, at any socio-economic level.
