PingMag features a nice interview with Blaine Brownell, an architect and sustainable material researcher, as well as the author of the recently published collection of innovation in green design and materials, Transmaterial 2: A Catalog of Materials That Redefine Our Physical Environment. As PingMag’s Yariv Revah describes, the book contains everything “from repurposed materials that act as surrogates, to recombinant ones that fuse several materials into a hybrid, making them stronger and more effective” — a reflection of what Brownell sees as the future of environmental design. The interview provides a little background on Brownell and how he came to be an authority in the sustainable design world, along with his insights about the history of green design and where it needs to go. Highlights from the interview:
