Description
From vast architectural projects to modest one-off pieces of salvaged furniture, this abundantly illustrated catalogue explores how the design world is responding to the ecological challenges of the 21st century. Architecture journalist Marcus Fairs considers such emerging trends as recycling, ethical sourcing, social sustainability (which considers the welfare of workers), and the concept of cradle-to-cradle enterprises, where a product can continually be reused. The book profiles products, vehicles, and housing, from Edouard François's "Flower Tower," a ten-story building sheathed in living bamboo plants, to the whale-like airship Manned Cloud.
