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.)
