Ken Yeang, Llewellyn Davies Yeang, presents some propositions addressing the idea of ecologically responsive built environment at the CTBUH 2006 Chicago Conference held at the Herman Hall, Illinois Institute of Technology. Ken believes that a responsive built environment will likely change the way we work and our current ecologically profligate way of life. Saving our environment is the most vital issue that humankind must address today, feeding into our fears that this millennium may be our last. For the designer, the compelling question is: How do we design for a sustainable future? This question, similarly, concerns industry. Companies now anxiously seek to understand the environmental consequences of their business, to envision what their business might be if it were sustainable, and to seek ways to realize this vision with ecologically benign strategies, new business models, production systems, materials and processes.
