Description

Designers, Visionaries+ Other Stories unpacks the complex and crucial debates surrounding sustainable design to deliver a compelling manifesto for change, at a time of looming ecological crisis, mounting environmental legislations and limited sustainable design progress. This is a book about sustainable design, by the leading sustainable design thinkers, for creative practitioners of all disciplines - professionals, students and academics. This challenging book provides the reader with a rich resource of future visions, critical propositions, creative ideas and design strategies for working towards a sustainable tomorrow, today.

Designers, Visionaries and Other Stories boldly presents alternative understandings of sustainable design, to curate a challenging, sometimes uncomfortable and always provocative collection of essays by some of the world's leading sustainable design thinkers. The result is an impacting anthology that reinvigorates the culture of critique that in previous years has empowered design with the qualities of social, environmental and economic revolution.
