Designing with Empathy

Listen to Jerry Michalski in conversation with Vinay Gupta about the
hexayurt, an innovative design for lightweight shelter, and possibly
the future of disaster relief.

Vinay Gupta is the inventor of the hexayurt—a lightweight portable
shelter—and a thinker and advisor on issues of long term global
sustainability. He is a partner at Buttered Side Down, a risk
management consultancy. Vinay also co-edited Winning the Oil Endgame, an independent, peer-reviewed synthesis for American business and military leaders that charts a roadmap for getting the United States completely, attractively, and profitably off oil.

(The live conversation took place on April 1, 2010.)
