DESIGNED FOR THE FUTURE: 80 PRACTICAL IDEAS FOR A SUSTAINABLE WORLD. Jared Green. Princeton Architectural Press, Inc., New York, 2015. 176 pp. with 98 ills. (97 col.). 21 x 16 cm. LC 2014-34253 ISBN 9781616893002 In English.
Publisher's description: Designed for the Future asks an international roster of eighty architects, landscape architects, urban designers, sustainable designers, policymakers, and writers to answer in five hundred words or less the simple yet critically important question: What contemporary or historical design represents the best hopes for our future success on earth? Their insightful responses range from the passive cooling strategies employed at Cambodia's ancient temple city of Angkor Wat to cutting-edge eco-friendly mushroom board as a replacement for Styrofoam to shoes that respond to local culture and climate. Each offers much-needed new solutions to the complex social, economic, and environmental challenges facing twenty-first century communities.
