Innovation magazine’s 2016 winter quarterly, the publication of the Industrial Designers Society of America, features an article written by Tom Knittel. The issue focuses on design and storytelling, where ‘…the story is the primary motivating event that leads to design and to innovation. There’s also a structure to true storytelling, a genre referred to in the literary/publishing world as narrative nonfiction or creative nonfiction. This form of writing also has a design; it too follows a process from start to finish in the way it is crafted.’

Tom tells the story of the key influences and events that shaped the design of USGBC’s LEED Platinum, net zero, Clinton Children’s Center in Port of Prince, Haiti, scheduled for a late summer 2017 completion.
