Master Speaker Lance Hosey: The Coming Revolution

GBCI: 0910000378

Does going green change the face of design or only its content? In The Shape of Green: Aesthetics, Ecology, and Design, the first book to outline a clear set of principles for the aesthetics of sustainable design, Lance Hosey argues that beauty is inherent to sustainability, for how things look and feel is as important as how they’re made. Form and image can enhance conservation, comfort, and community at every scale of design, from products to buildings to cities. Aesthetic attraction isn’t a superficial concern—it’s an environmental imperative. Finally bridging the gap “good design” and “green design” could revolutionize every aspect of design and architecture.
