Everyone is talking about oil, or the lack thereof.
In November we talked about renown photographer Edward Burtynsky’s exhibit of desolate landscapes scarred by oil extraction at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
Now we’re looking forward to listening to Conversations in Design: A World Without Oil, an all-day symposium featuring innovative design leaders from around the world. On the roster are internationally acclaimed designers Bruce Mau, Tord Boontje, Tucker Viemeister, and David Quan, among others.
These design experts will be sharing their ideas and hopefully provoking new ones about what sustainable design means in an ever-changing world— where oil may one day not exist. Editors of Azure and I.D. magazines will be moderating some of these discussions.
The event takes place on January 21st as part of Toronto’s International Design Festival.
Get your ticket here and let the imagining of A World Without Oil begin.
