Handbook of Sustainable Design
The Routledge Handbook of Sustainable Design (copyright 2017) is an edited volume of 35 chapters from designers, scientists, academics and other professionals working to advance the field of sustainable design. The handbook considers the design, not only of artifacts, but of structures, systems, and interactions that bear our decisions and identities in the context of sustaining our shared planet. In addressing issues of design for global impact, behavior change, systems and strategy, ethics and values, this handbook presents a unique and powerful design perspective.
“A timely book that (finally) situates design within a systems context. Diverse articles examine the social and environmental implications of designed images, artifacts, systems and structures in a globally inter-connected and interdependent world as well as the ethics and values that underpin them. Essential reading for designing responsibly in the 21st century.” — Terry Irwin, Head, School of Design, Carnegie Mellon University
