Global warming poses new challenges to the architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design communities. The immediate response has been a turn toward a host of energy-saving technologies. What has rarely been addressed, however, is the problem of scale. How can designers make sure that global solutions do not come at the expense of local cultures and environments? By placing human rational, emotional, technological, and social needs at the center of our environmental concerns, this book proposes a new global design initiative. The aim is to develop a language of design that can create proximity between individual responsibility and the current global environmental crisis. These featured projects showcase leading-edge design innovations at multiple scales. Global Design NYU directors Peder Anker, Louise Harpman, and Mitchell Joachim discuss various ways in which design can reformat the unfortunate separation between humans and the natural world.

Plum and pear trees shade park benches in Kamloops, British Columbia. Tomatoes and cucumbers burst forth from planters at City Hall in Provo, Utah. Strawberries and carrots flourish along the sunny sidewalks of a Los Angeles neighborhood. The idea that public land could be used creatively to grow fresh food for local citizens was beginning to gain traction when Public Produce was first published in 2009, but there were few concrete examples of action. Today, things are different: fruits and vegetables are thriving in parks, plazas, along our streets, and around our civic buildings. This revised edition of Public Produce profiles the many communities and community officials that are rethinking the role of public space in cities, and shows how places as diverse as parking lots and playgrounds can sustain health and happiness through fresh produce. But these efforts produce more than food. Revitalizing urban areas, connecting residents with their neighborhoods, fruits and vegetables in our gathering spots.

The desire for design that is as friendly to the environment as it is to the eye has driven creative thinkers to new heights in their work, the very best of which are captured in Green First! A variety of projects ranging from whimsical planters and 8-bit campaigns raising awareness about endangered species, to furniture made from repurposed construction materials and creative energy solutions display how designers have risen to the challenge of green design. The works often utilize new, more environmentally-friendly materials or upcycled products to create exciting and surprising designs that engage and inspire, while still reminding those who encounter them of the ever-present need to care for our environment. Alongside the vibrant images and campaigns are insightful comments from the designers and brands behind the designs, which include the World Wildlife Foundation, American Apparel, Tesco, Adidas and more.

Bio Design examines some seventy projects (concepts, prototypes and completed designs) that cover the fields of architecture, industrial processes, education, fine art, material engineering and bioengineering. Each project is illustrated by a short text, images and captions that combine to explain the problems the venture tackles, and how living materials and processes were harnessed to solve them in sustainable and aesthetically pleasing ways. Designers and artists have always looked to nature for inspiration and materials, but only recently have they been able to alter and incorporate living organisms in their work. In a world with finite resources and a growing population, design that mimics or appropriates the sustainable template of nature is likely to prove as vital as it is novel. Many of the solutions also provoke thought about manipulating life for human ends. From bacteria that can spin microfibrils of pure cellulose for use in the clothing industry to ess detergent instead of faeces.

Sustainable architecture is one of the most popular trends today. With dense urban living and less green space available, green walls and roofs are helping to fill that gap. These living structures can be created with vegetation, which helps to absorb rainwater, provide insulation, and lower temperatures while creating a habitat for natural flora and fauna. ''Green Walls Green Roofs'' features projects from all over the world, showing how these elements work in various climates. Ranging from the tropical houses in Singapore to inner-city buildings in North America, this richly illustrated book will show you how living architecture can enrich our world.

The transition from green to sustainable requires new tools for thinking, new descriptors that reflect both the mitigation of impact and resilience to adverse change. A number of recently completed projects from across Asia go beyond the current conventions of greening. Individually, they speak to the diversity of this wide and varied region; collectively, they illustrate six principles that could together form a path to sustainability. Author Nirmal Kishnani details more than 30 projects in photos, drawings and texts, demonstrating the rise of long-term, locally-oriented and community-specific solutions in architectural practice, from Bangladesh to the Philippines and from Vietnam to Taiwan.

It also aimes to revive the discourse around these subjects. Achieving this will require the involvement of architects and structural, energy and environmental engineers, construction businesses and specialists, research institutes and universities. The five chapters and 333 show-cased projects reflect important stages in the architectural and engineering-based design process, stages which need to be addressed when dealing with sustainable strategies in the built environment.

Elegant, innovative or even extravagant design can hardly exist on its own today. The ecological and sustainable design of products is the argument that clinches the sale - especially where one is prepared to pay something more for design. That principal applies as well to the manufacture of products, for example those which are resource sparing, as well as their application, if they are low-emission and finally their disposal, if they are compostable. Green Design, Vol. 2 shows the most varied strategies of environmentally compatible design. Especially notable is the recycling of unusual materials, fair production and fair trade, low-emission use and finally the principal of conversion instead of disposal.

This is Alex McKay''s story. It shows how the world could look in 2050, if we play our cards right. It''s upbeat, dynamic - a world that works well for the vast majority of people. A world in which 90% of our energy comes from renewable sources, and 30% of our electricity from solar power. A world in which standard IT devices are computing at the same rate as the human brain, and everyone loves their robots. A world in which nanotechnology, 3D printing and biomimicry have transformed manufacturing. A world in which personal genomics allow everyone to manage their own health, live longer and healthier, and die when they want to. A world in which there are still rich and poor, but the rich are poorer but happier, and the poor are richer in so many ways. Based on extensive factual research, leading environmentalist Jonathon Porritt describes a sustainable world that is prosperous, exciting and healthy.
