In the last fifty years, technology has transformed the world. It has enabled us to live longer, instantaneously communicate with each other across the planet and explore the tiniest bits of our world and the furthest regions of our solar system. We are only now beginning to recognize that this dizzying speed of technological advancement – resulting in exponential population growth and an insatiable appetite for energy – has impacted the natural world. In response to this recognition, markets have created a demand for technological innovation to reduce culture’s impact on the natural world. The Gwinnett Environmental & Heritage Center will usher in the new year with “The Technology of Sustainable Design”, an exhibition about new developments in sustainable design that features the work of Atlanta-based firm Houser Walker Architecture, Timmons Design Engineers, United Renewable Energy and Suniva, a world leader in solar cells. The exhibition will run from January 9 to February 27.
