SINGAPORE, March 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — American Standard, one of the most iconic brands in sanitary ware and part of the LIXIL Group, is hosting the American Standard Design Catalyst L!VE, a webinar bringing together thought leaders in Architecture and Design from across the Asia Pacific region.
The United Nations Development Programme estimates that, globally, cities account for 55% of humanity, 70% of GHG emissions and 80% of global GDP. Continuing rapid urbanization will place increasing pressure on how we design and use public and private spaces that promote health, well-being and sustainable living. This creates new challenges for planners and designers to work with smaller spaces, smarter design and new urban lifestyles.
American Standard Design Catalyst L!VE will engage in that conversation with key subject matter experts in architecture and design. We will expand on the issues with insights, practical frameworks and strategies centered on three key themes: Health and Well-being, Sustainability, and Urbanization.
The two-hour event will be streamed free on Wednesday, 23 March in English, Bahasa Indonesia, Thai and Vietnamese; and will feature the following panelists and speakers from across the region:
- Hayley Mitchell, Director, Mitchell and Eades, Australia
- Ivy Almario, President & Co-founder, Atelier Almario, Philippines
