Designing Personal Sustainability

BY LISA HEMINGWAY
@ VOL 3 ON JAN 30, 2016

“When I first started, I became busy so quickly but I learned busy doesn't mean happy. I had no time to do the creative work I had been hired to do, let alone any personal projects, volunteer work or on some days even eat or sleep. People told me oh you're busy that's so great! but this kind of busy was making me miserable.”

In Designing Personal Sustainability from PechaKucha Night Nanaimo’s 3rd Volume Speaker Lisa Hemingway talks us through her journey of applying principles of sustainability into her personal life. A collaborative creative consultant with a focus on sustainable design, she provides useful advice in how to sustain yourself when you work on your own. After all, when you're your own boss, your most important employee is yourself.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, February 24th, 2016.

Practical Sustainability

BY IDC ARCHITECTS KUCHING
@ VOL 7 ON MAR 23, 2019

The word “SUSTAIN” means to thrive under a given set of conditions, to endure. The term sustainability implies the state where existence occurs in set conditions. This term is extensively being used today in the context of architecture.

Sustainability in architecture may be a new term but the concept beneath it is ages old. From the pages of the past, we can trace the footprints of sustainable building culture.
