From electric vehicle test drives  to fully-built sustainable homes , the best green designs  will be landing in Los Angeles starting TODAY for Dwell on Design 2011 . The annual design extravaganza brings an incredible array of products, furnishings, and housewares to the L.A. Convention Center for three days of talks , exhibits , and events . Inhabitat  will be hosting the Modern Family Lounge , so if you’re in the City of Angels, stop by and say hello. Hit the jump for a preview of a few of the dozens of eco-tastic activities that will be happening.
If you’ve always wanted to take a spin in a super sleek EV, you’ll have the chance at Dwell on Design. Organized by Ron Cogan of Green Car Journal  and GreenCar.com , attendees will have the opportunity to test drive 13 different electric and hybrid cars . The Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, the Audi A7 sedan, and the cute Mitsubishi’s Euro-style i-MiEV will all be available.
On the showroom floor, there will be a featured exhibit of a 500 square foot green home of the future  designed and conceived by Ecofabulous , pieceHomes , and prefab builder OneBuild . The fully-appointed structure is outfitted with the latest green furnishings that highlight innovation in design with cutting-edge materials and new technologies. Green features include solar passive heating, natural ventilation, PV-ready, bathroom tiles made from recycled glass, renewable cork floors and much more.
If you’re looking to learn a little something about green design at the event, Dwell on Design has an entire stage devoted to sustainability. Events will range from a panel of prefab experts  to discussions of the future of landscape architecture . On Friday evening, Bill McDonough, author of the revolutionary book Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things , will be giving the keynote speech . During his speech, he will “describe how Cradle to Cradle intentional thinking about design, architecture, and industry can create a future that is ‘more good’ rather than ‘less bad.'”
