Remote Zoom Lecture #2: Mae-Ling Lokko
Coconut Coup d'etat: On Activating Generative Justice through Design
5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Online - Zoom meeting
Mae-ling Lokko (Ghana/Philippines) is an architectural scientist and building technology researcher whose work centers on the upcycling of agrowaste and biopolymer materials into high-performance clean-building material systems for humidity control, indoor air-quality remediation, and water-quality-control applications. Lokko holds a PhD and MSc in Architectural Science from the Center for Architecture Science and Ecology, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and a BA from Tufts University. Her research integrates a broad range of technical, environmental, social, and cultural criteria that question contemporary material-value systems. She also codevelops business models for upcycling and evolves material life-cycle design criteria to meet generative-justice criteria. Lokko teaches seminars on energy and ecology in relation to the built environment, waste use and upcycling, and ecoeffective material life-cycle design. Hosted by (her sister) Lesley Lokko.
