Deep Design: Pathways to a Livable Future. By David Wann. Explores a new way of thinking about design, one that asks "What is our ultimate goal?" before the first step has been taken. It shows how designs that begin with such a question - whether in products, buildings, technologies, or communities - are sensitive to living systems, and can potentially accomplish their mission without the seemingly unavoidable side effects of pollution, erosion, congestion, and stress. "Deep designs" meet the criteria of renewability, recyclability, and nontoxicity, and they are easy to understand and implement. As Kindle | More… | David Wann EcoSpeakers Info >>
