Meet Ben Uyeda
Ben is a designer, lecturer, and entrepreneur focusing on the field of affordable and sustainable design. Ben is the co-founder and design director of FreeGreen.com, as well as a visiting lecturer at Northeastern University.
Ben received both his B.Arch. and his Master of Architecture from Cornell University. After graduating in 2005, Ben was hired as a visiting lecturer at Cornell where he created an original curriculum for teaching sustainable design, emphasizing the importance of critically understanding contemporary media and popular culture when trying to implement environmentally progressive technologies.
HomeMade Modern was launched with the intent of participating in the mass dissemination of good design ideas, not the mass production of value-engineered objects. Every project that we publish is created with the belief that design is about communicating how and why something should be made. We want to inspire and encourage people to create heirloom quality goods with naturally durable materials.
