RYAN'S TALK, Unlearning from Meow Wolf, what a unique design experience says about the future of architecture
Watch Ryan's talk on YOUTUBE:
When designing Convergence Station, the Denver iteration of Meow Wolf, Ryan found himself in the middle of a unique design experience – a counterintuitive moment that pushed him to new innovations and personal growth. Architecture has tremendous potential to solve our biggest sustainability goals at scale (embodied carbon, operational energy, healthy environments, end of life reuse). When we embrace strategic constraints, we will unlock the possibilities.
