Architect William McDonough claims he first heard about Ford Motor Co.’s $2-billion makeover of its River Rouge production plant in Dearborn, Mich., on May 4, 1999, the same day that Ford CEO William Clay Ford Jr. called a press conference to announce that McDonough would lead the design team. Picking McDonough, a wry Charlottesville, Va.-based iconoclast who preaches environmentally benign, sustainable design, was a bold move for the automaker. McDonough believes in not only fundamentally altering buildings, but also changing the way things are made, to make the planet a better place.
