mindful MATERIALS is a virtual building product library led by the world's largest consortium of design firms, manufacturers and reporting bodies, including HKS, Perkins+Will, HOK, SOM, Gensler, HDR, ZGF, SmithGroup JJR, Wight & Company, Arup, M Moser, Intertek, SCS, Berkeley Analytical and many more. Its phenomenal growth over the past 18 months is the result of the industry's desire for neutral, curated, un-biased and up-to-date product information from a diversity of sources. mindful MATERIALS creates a transparent and level playing field among product certifiers, is curated by architects and designers and serves as a common library for over 150 design firms. Born in North America, mindful MATERIALS has grown into Europe and is now available in China.

 

Join us for a special introductory session to mindful MATERIALS and a roundtable discussion about maximizing the usefulness of mindful MATERIALS in China. This session is open to all and is especially relevant for architects, interior designers, consultants and contractors.

 

The session will be led by Anjanette Green, RESET Director of Standards and a mindful MATERIALS Working Group Member. It will also include a special guest presentation by James Connelly of the International Living Future Institute on integrated material ingredient reporting via Declare and Toxnot and how to flow the results into mindful MATERIALS.

 

Date: Monday, October 22nd.

Time: 6:30PM.

Location: One Museum Place, Hines ‘in-situ’ Office. 15F, 669 XinZha Road, Jing'an District, Shanghai
