Making stuff from trash and making a difference best describes Arthur Huang‘s career path. The Taiwan-born, Cornell-trained architect is a trailblazer for closed-loop economics, upcycling, and design solutions aimed at accelerating the shift to a circular economy. To aid in these ambitions he formed the pioneering upcycling company Miniwiz – which now operates in Taiwan, Shanghai, Berlin, and Milan. We are pleased to announce Huang will be a featured speaker at this year’s event, Nov. 8-9 at the Vancouver Trade and Convention Centre.
