Workshop integrates nature into design

Local greens seeking to integrate nature into the built environment may find inspiration at an Evergreen workshop which will explore the relationship between people and nature through Daoist and Buddhist teachings. This free event will be held Saturday, May 20 from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Seminar 2, Room B 1105.

Presenters will include Matthew Sweigart, Shiatsu master and author; and Michael Singer, artist and designer. If you go to Singer’s website you’ll see a fascinating range of designs that attempt to rethink industrial assumptions about architecture.
