About this book

Designing for sustainability is an innovation shaping both the design industry and design education today. Yet architects, product designers, and other key professionals in this new field have so far lacked a resource that addresses their sensibilities and concerns. "The Designer's Atlas of Sustainability" now explores the basic principles, concepts, and practice of sustainable design in a visually sophisticated and engaging style. The book tackles not only the ecological aspects of sustainable design - designers' choice of materials and manufacturing processes have a tremendous impact on the natural world - but also the economic and cultural elements involved.

The Atlas is neither a how-to manual, nor collection of recipes for sustainable design, but a compendium of fresh approaches to sustainability that designers can incorporate into daily thinking and practice. Illuminating many facets of this exciting field, the book offers ideas on how to harmonize human and natural systems, and then explores practical options for making the business of design more supportive of long-term sustainability.
