Bamboo: From Green Design to Sustainable Design

Price : $74.75
ISBN # : 9788186962916
Author : Rebecca Reubens
pages: 264
Edition : Paperback
Volumes : 1
Publisher : Promilla & Co., Publishers
Published : 2012

Focuses on the links between design, craft and sustainability, expanding the scope of design and opportunities for designers. It inspires designers to move beyond 'green' or eco-design,into the realm of holistically sustainable design by focusing on bamboo-- an ancient, renewable material-- which has recently seen a resurgence in popularity, in both design and sustainability. The book highlights bamboo's versatile applications and their impact on ecological, economic, social and cultural sustainability. The Sustainability Checklist included here will empower designers to guide and evaluate their designs-- and move from green design towards sustainable design. The Prince Claus Fund supports this publication for its treatment of sustainability's many facets, unlike others that only recognize the ecological meaning. The Fund believes that culture is a basic need and the motor of development, and so actively seeks cultural collaborations founded on equality and trust, with partners of excellence, in spaces where resources and opportunities for cultural expression, creative production and research are limited and cultural heritage is threatened.
