The concept dates back to January of 2009 so it’s definitely not new, but the Letout Outlet, designed by Damjan Stanković, is new to me.

He’s been in office for only nine months, but President Obama is moving quickly to reframe the environmental debate and reset expectations on the part of many stakeholders. All this change will have both an immediate and a long-term impact for business.
