As concerns about climate change and environmental degradation mount, designers strive to be part of the solution, not the problem. From vast architectural projects to modest one-off pieces of salvaged furniture, "Green Design" shows how the design world has responded to the ecological challenges of the twenty-first century. Architecture journalist Marcus Fairs examines emergent trends such as recycling, ethical sourcing, social sustainability (which considers the welfare of workers), and cradle-to-cradle enterprises, where a product can continually be reused. By showcasing existing green innovations as well as visionary projects that will be built in the coming years, including the worlds first zero-carbon city, this thought-provoking volume paints a picture of a future in which technology and ethics merge.
