More on the theme
Whilst the concept of conscious design has been newly coined, there are already many examples of professionals in the built environment who are creating physical environments with more awareness, tools, and technology which help improve the quality of life of its inhabitants. In this theme we will be exploring industry case studies which already implement conscious design elements.
