Sustainable by design: explorations in theory and practice
· Presents and develops theory into practice through worked design examples Sustainable by Design offers a compelling, innovative, and design-centered approach that explores both the meaning and practice of sustainable design. Walker explores the design process in the context of sustainability, and challenges conventional ways of defining, designing, and producing functional objects. He discusses the personal design process, tacit knowledge, ephemeral design, experimental design, and the relationship between intellectual design criteria, physical expression, and aesthetic experience. This book will introduce vital concepts and inspire by providing a well-articulated basis for understanding the complexity and potential of sustainable design, and extolling the contribution of design to the creation of a more meaningful material culture.
