Product Description
From vast architectural projects to modest one-off pieces of salvaged furniture, “Green Design” shows how the design world is responding to the environmental challenges of the twenty-first century. Emerging trends in green design are covered, such as recycling and ethical sourcing. Also considered is the parallel issue of social sustainability, where the welfare of factory workers is given equal importance to environmental issues, and the idea of Cradle to Cradle enterprises, where a product can be reused over several product histories or unending ‘loops’. By showcasing existing green innovations as well as visionary projects that will be built in the coming years, including the world’s first zero-carbon city, “Green Design” paints a future where technology and ethics merge.
