The Green Imperative : Ecology and Ethics in Design and Architecture Paperback



This work asserts the belief that the power of design can influence a more responsible approach to our threatened environment.

It shows how everyone, from those at the forefront of design to the consumers, can contribute to the well-being of the planet through an awareness of design and technology.

The book explores a more spiritually-satisfying approach to design - designing for need, not greed.

It also includes examples from all areas of design, from packaging and product design to large-scale architecture.

Practical advice and checklists for the consumer on selecting and buying, using and re-using is also featured.
