January 6, 2010 - 5:30pm

Design Ecologies is a collection of never-before-published essays and case studies by today's most innovative designers and critics under increasing pressure to offer a sustainable future. A new generation of architects, landscape architects, designers, and engineers are aiming to recalibrate what humans do in the world according to how the world works as a biophysical system. This recasting of the green movement for the twenty-first century transforms design into a positive agent balancing societal values with environmental needs. Design in this sense is a larger concept having to do as much with politics and ethics as with aesthetics and technology.

Design Ecologies is available for purchase from the Princeton Architectural Press
