Regeneration with Daniel Glenn | 7 Directions Architects & Planners

April 27, 2021

April 22 hosted the seventh Regeneration session with Daniel Glenn, a nationally recognized Indigenous architect specializing in culturally responsive architecture and sustainable design that reflect his Apsáalooke (Crow) Tribal heritage. He is currently the principal architect at 7 Directions Architects & Planners, a design firm that creates contemporary buildings which use less energy, less non-renewable materials, and which are highly responsive to the local climate. Using case studies, Daniel spoke about the intertwined aspects of sustainability and culture and how to regenerate communities through this lens. This conversation addressed a series of questions, including: How does embedding cultural research into architecture help communities regenerate? How does it foster sustainable futures for the same? How does a collaborative and participatory approach in design increase the regenerative impact of reimagined architecture?
