Designed for the Future

In stock (50 items available)
Designed for the Future asks an international roster of eighty architects, landscape architects, urban designers, sustainable designers, policy-makers, and writers to answer in five hundred words or less a simple yet crucial question: What contemporary or historical design represents the best hopes for our success on earth? Features leading thinkers in the design field, including curator Barry Bergdoll, educator Alan Berger, environmentalist Lester Brown, and others. 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.
