Yestermorrow Design/Build School in Warren, Vt., announced the addition of two new members to its board of directors. The new board members — Danny Sagan and Ben Falk — are also instructors at the school.
Falk directs Whole Systems Design LLC in the development of regenerative human habitats. Whole Systems Design is composed of ecologists who design and build sustaining settlement systems that yield food, water, inspiration, learning and health. Through the design and development of integrated human places, WSD is a place-based response to the contemporary challenges of climate change, resource depletion, economic instability, and isolation and anxiety in our modern society.
Sagan is presently a design/builder with Terra Firma Inc., which he co-founded with Alisa Dworsky. Sagan is especially interested in climatically-derived, energy-efficient buildings and the sustainable use of building materials. An assistant professor at Norwich (Vt.) University where he teaches architecture and design-build, Sagan is one of the co-authors of the “Vermont Builds Greener” rating system and has also taught at Stanford and Yale.
