Product description

Design for Sustainability Survival Guide concerns all the details on applying sustainability requirements in design. It is a critical and concise overview of the important facts from all imaginable angles. The book is written and illustrated to inform, support and inspire future designers.

The guide covers everything in sustainability: from personal reader experience to universal guiding principles, from energy use and the flow of materials to the role of time, consumption, use, circularity and reduction.

It includes tips, principles and guidelines to nourish design projects from start to finish. New approaches beyond the conventional are introduced and current assumptions on economics, technology and design are pointed out throughout the book.

Authors

Conny Bakker is professor of Design Methodology for Sustainability and Circular Economy at TU Delft, faculty of Industrial Design Engineering. Ed van Hinte is an author, design critic and educator focusing on the consequences of mass reduction. Yvo Zijlstra is a graphic-, editorial- and digital media designer.

Hot off the press, the “Design for Sustainability Survival Guide” lives up to its promise by consciously stepping away from the discussion about why sustainability is so important and focusing instead on how to rise to the occasion.

This pocket-sized book is a launch-pad for design engineering students and practitioners eager to innovate sustainably.

The need to incorporate sustainability in design projects is evident. However, going from ambition to impact is a challenging process. Improving the sustainability of a design involves a myriad of trade-offs; making a positive change in one area could inadvertently create problems in another.

Consumer perceptions of what makes a sustainable product may be at odds with the real-world data. Whether you are a designer, an engineer or a client, it’s important how to create a genuinely sustainable message without ‘greenwashing’. When done correctly, however, design with sustainability at its core is a force for innovation.
