I've always been interested in architecture and have recently become
interested in sustainable design. Dwell, a magazine I absolutely
love, is sponsoring a Design conference in San Fran Sept 14-16.
Anyone else thinking of going?

In theory, theory and practice are the same.
In practice, they are not.

I'd be in, but can't make it.

Some of the prefab stuff is really cool. There's a lot of opportunity in
integration between "villages" and technology, for sustainability,
efficiencies, etc, which IxDA could play a big part. Think of "iPhone" is
"iCity".

It would be great to get an IxDA POV recap,

Rich

My business partner Ellen is building one of the prefab Dwell homes. So far
it has been a fiasco as they don't really have their act together yet. If
someone is interested in building a Dwell house, I can put you in touch with
Ellen to get info from her on what is going wrong/right.

I went to the Dwell on Design conference last year and it was interesting
(and had a bunch of neat designy stuff to look at) but was not as
comprehensive in the speaker and information department as one might have
liked. It might be better this year and I may go...but I wouldn't fly out
just for this.

Julie,

Which Dwell house is she building? I tried to get a quote on the Wee
House,and they had a year long backlog, with no guarentee after that.

Wee house is not one of the official "Dwell homes". She is the first one
building a dwell house in the bay area.
