Carl Hastrich - Keynote Lecture: On Biomimicry and Design
John Dutton Theatre

Carl Hastrich is an Industrial Designer currently based in Canada with an interest in Sustainability. His recent experience has involved working in the Toy Industry making a variety of products, from collectable figurines to yo-yos. Having been exposed to the unsustainable practices going on in Toy Design and the toxic factory manufacturing environments in China he was interested in looking for new avenues to address these issues. He has since packed up shop and moved to Canada to pursue various new opportunities for sustainable design. Recently he has been teaching at Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD) and working with students to develop new design methodologies that incorporate biomimicry into their design process.
