Hockenberry at Dwell on Design: What percent of this conversation about sustainability will be permanent vs. fad in 10 years?
Geoff Manaugh: We won’t need to talk about sustainability issues because they’ll be the norm. 89%.
Frank Harmon: We’re losing the battle, houses are treated like a box of cereal. 5%
Lorcan O’Herlihy: There’s a way to go. 50%.
Gwynne Pugh: There’s been a fundamental paradigm shift. 30-40%
Reed Kroloff: It depends on the people in the press, to change public opinion. 30%. It also depends on the government to create a tax incentive and energy costs have to keep rising so Americans keep paying attention. And, it depends on you.
That’s a good way to end this episode of Dwell on Design, and also, by starting to think about the next one: June 6,7 & 8, 2008 in…Los Angeles (woohoo!).
