      William McDonough, internationally acclaimed sustainability designer
      and architect, will be in the Bay Area on November 14 and 15, 2001
      William McDonough, FAIA
      William McDonough is an internationally respected designer and one of
      the primary proponents and shapers of what he and his partners call
      “The Next Industrial Revolution.â€? Time Magazine recently
      recognized him as a “Hero for the Planetâ€?, stating that “his
      utopianism is grounded in a unified philosophy that – in
      demonstrable and practical ways – is changing the design of the
      world.� His ideas and efforts were also honored when, in 1996, he
      received the Presidential Award for Sustainable Development, the
      nation’s highest environmental honor.

      Mr. McDonough is founding principal of William McDonough + Partners,
      Architects and Planners, a globally recognized design firm practicing
      ecologically, socially, and economically intelligent architecture and
      community design in the U.S. and abroad. The firm has been a leader
      in the sustainable development movement since 1977. Their design
      of the Environmental Defense Fund offices, completed in 1985, helped
      launch the ‘green building’ movement. Mr. McDonough and his team
      are now working to transform the Ford Motor Company’s Detroit
      area River Rouge factory into a sustainable building complex.
      Recent award-winning projects for Gap Inc., Nike, Herman Miller,
      and Oberlin College have set new standards for design quality,
      environmental sensitivity, and functional effectiveness.

      Mr. McDonough is a professor of Architecture at the University of
      Virginia. He is also the former Dean of Architecture. In addition, he
      is the founder and creative director, Institute for Sustainable
      Design and Commerce, Darden Graduate School of Business
      Administration at the University of Virginia.
