Every designer being an architect, engineer, interior designer or lighting expert has sometime faced the dilemma of considering the intention of somehow merging aesthetic styles from different geographies of the world in order to create a richer and rejuvenated built environment. This initiative leads us to countless very discouraging scenarios in some cases: impenetrable local technical regulations and standards, markets without incentives, exorbitant costs, reluctance to the unknown and to trying new alternatives. How to ensure that all these situations make us less intimidated and daring to go down perhaps unusual paths that will result in better quality outcomes? These will surely put the client and the project in a higher stage of satisfaction. In this seminar we will analyze different perspectives to promote the exchange of thoughts and opinions that are feasible to carry out and that will take us to the next level of hierarchy of the human being. We will understand how to feel at home with atmospheres from across the pond.
