Leading analysts of all the major resource domains - water, food, material, energy and finance - are all telling us that our global industrial growth models are taking the planet to the brink of chronic scarcity. In architecture, concerns about depleting material and energy sources have largely been centered on the more emollient category of 'sustainability.' This book brings together leading thinkers for the first time in a single volume, including Ezio Manzini, Erik Swyngedouw, John Thackara and Jeremy Till. In addition, featured architects and designers include Jody Boehnert, Katrin Bohn and Andre Viljoen.
