Summary
"What design represents the best hopes for our future success on earth? Designed for the Future: 80 Practical Ideas for a Sustainable World asks American and international landscape architects, architects, planners, urban designers, policymakers, writers, and sustainable designers to answer the question in five hundred words or less. Each person outlines how a project or design practice, historic or contemporary, has created a more positive relationship between the built and natural environments, and helps solve the complex social, economic, and environmental challenges facing twenty-first-century communities. The designs range from the passive cooling strategies at Angkor Wat to the ecofriendly mushroom board that was designed by Ecovative Design to replace Styrofoam, and represent the varying scales of solutions that can help to make our future better through the built and natural environment"--
