May 13th Salon's Guest is Architect Michael Green
I'm pleased to announce the May Raincoast Creative Salon guest - innovative architect Michael Green, TEDtalk presenter in February 2013 and advocate of wooden skyscrapers.
"I'm personally interested in real diversity, looking specifically at projects that have social conscience to them and an environmental perspective".
We'll meet for drinks and appys and then listen to architect Michael Green present and discuss an interesting riddle: why are buildings made of wood only a few stories high when trees found in nature are remarkable for their height?
Of course there'll be a creative angle to this as well. You KNOW we can't get together without creating something! And you might very well guess that it will involve wood.

The Big Web Show Podcast
Do you listen to podcasts? I recently listened to the Big Web Show
interview with Tina Roth Eisenberg of Swiss Miss
and Creative Mornings
fame. I was lucky to hear Tina speak in person last August at ALTNYC
. Always inspiring.
Here are three quotes from that interview that have stuck with me:
"Surround yourself with smart, passionate, driven people".
"Face to face conversations are different".
"Real connections are not made behind a screen".
Some of the reasons behind the genesis of Raincoast Creative Salon.
(By the way, if you don't yet attend Creative Mornings, do it! Designer Mark Busse
does an amazing job of stickhandling them each month. And it's a wonderful group of attendees - I ALWAYS meet someone new and interesting and creative).
