Clara M. Southworth Lecture with Paul Discoe

March 12, 5:00 PM

Designer and innovator Paul Discoe is managing partner for O2 Artisans Aggregate (O2AA), an urban industrial eco-park in Oakland, Calif. He is also a design consultant for Japanese-style temples, restaurants, houses, and furniture. His studio at O2AA includes a small workshop for prototypes and one-of-a-kind objects. A longtime student of Zen Buddhism, Discoe is an ordained Buddhist priest who decided to devote his retirement to solving sustainability issues through design. Some of his current projects include an industrial food waste to animal feed plant, an aquaponic nursery for fish and plants alike, and a burgeoning biochar operation.

Sponsored by the Department of Art and the Clara M. Southworth Lecture Fund.
