Introduction -- Ecology -- Economy -- Culture -- Frontiers. "In The Designer's Atlas of Sustainability, Ann Thorpe takes readers on a visual tour of the landscape of sustainability to show how it is critical to the work of designers, ranging from architects to graphic artists. The Designer's Atlas encourages "development that cultivates environmental and social conditions that will support human well-being indefinitely." Designers and consumers alike will be intrigued by the connections the author reveals between our material comfort, our emotional well-being, and the health of our planet. The Designer's Atlas is a reference and source of new ideas for anyone interested in harmonizing our human and natural systems."--Jacket.
