Mizugiri: A Conversation with David Hertz

The Mizugiri blog features an interview with David Hertz about Skywater and his Skysource project.

David Hertz is known for his innovative, gutsy, environmental, and repurpose- oriented design approach. Among his many other ideas, he’s crushed old records, CDs, and videos in South Central crime communities, repurposing the detritus into colorful accents to tiled flooring. He’s turned old milk jugs into high fashion dresses for women, and he’s moved 747 airplane parts across swaths of terrain to build an especially aerodynamic and beautiful home for a client, all while making sure the house was sufficiently regenerative in its energy footprint.
