Due date: Forthcoming. Hardcover edition also available; see Worldwide 157551. Publisher's description: The question of how design can work positively to minimise environmental damage has come to the fore over the last three decades. Sustainability has become a pressing and permenant issue for designers. The momentum and urgency of what has come to be known as sustainable design makes it one of the most important and criticially discussed subfields within design, and The Sustainable Design Reader responds to this, reflecting and furthering the debate. The Sustainable Design Reader provides a unique and much-needed overview and examination of the discipline, enabling readers to investigate, understand and critique the role of sustainable design and its importance within contemporary-design industry and culture. From the historical background of sustainable design and how it came to be an essential design consideration, to how the practice of it will ultimately shape our future, this book provides an original and indispensable mapping-out of the discipline.
