Dwell on Design

Dwell on Design

This morning, I spoke at the Dwell on Design conference, where architects, designers, and others gathered for a vibrant discussion of modern design issues. The conference is hosted annually by Dwell Magazine and this is the first time it is being held in Los Angeles.

This year's conference focuses on sustainability, and I was proud to talk about Los Angeles "LEEDing" the way with our new Green Building Ordinance, which requires all large construction projects in our city to meet environmental standards.

The Dwell on Design conference ends Friday, but the exhibition runs through Sunday at the Los Angeles Convention Center and features more than 200 exhibitors, including an entire neighborhood of pre-fab, landscaped and furnished homes.
