“My final takeaway would be, as you are designing, keep an eye on the holistic side of things keep an eye on how does this impact the greater community and climate change and energy and, and all those things because when you take the holistic view in mind, you’re always going to end up with a better design at the end of the day. – Kristy L. Walson”
