Victor Papanek

Designer and educator Victor Papanek (1927-1999) was a strong advocate of the socially and ecologically responsible design of products, tools, and community infrastructures. He disapproved of manufactured products that were unsafe, showy, maladapted, or essentially useless. His products, writings, and lectures were collectively considered an example and spur by many designers. Papanek was a philosopher of design and as such he was an untiring, eloquent promoter of design aims and approaches that would be sensitive to social and ecological considerations. He wrote that "design has become the most powerful tool with which man shapes his tools and environments (and, by extension, society and himself)."

David W. Orr, Donald R. Warson et Daniel E Williams

David Orr barnstorms the country for the environment. Every year, three or four dozen colleges and universities invite him to lecture, often as keynote speaker for conferences and symposia. Reporters covering global warming flip through their Rolodexes for his name. Several dozen journals have published his articles about biophilia, sustainability, and, as he described it to Jay Parini in the New York Times, "environmentalism [as] a question of ethical design." Two of Orr's books, Earth in Mind and Ecological Literacy, have sold more than 10,000 copies each--bestsellers, by the accounting of academic publishing.

Kim Tanzer, Rafael Longoria

Kim Tanzer teaches design studios and architectural theory classes at the undergraduate and graduate level .Much of her teaching and research focuses on the relationship between the human body and large shared contexts such as the city and the landscape. In her writing, teaching and architectural and urban design she forges connections between the phenomenal experience of space and more abstract understandings of the environment used by architectural professionals. Her writings include "Baker's Loos and Loos's Loss: Architecting the Body," "The Production of Notational Objects" and "Releasing the Form to the Making: Womenswork is Never Done"

The green braid : towards an architecture of ecology, economy ans equity

( Routledge, UK)


Laura C. Zeiher

The ecology of architecture, by environmental writer Laura C. Zeiher, can be read as history, reference, and enlightenment to the field of green architecture. An experienced professional in the field of environmental design, Laura Zeiher writes a complete, yet concise explanation of how the field of environmental design originated, its definition, and resources for continuing its exploration. Unlike many books on this topic, this book goes on to discuss case studies from around the country, and supports these studies with the necessary laws associated with environmental legislation.

Landscape ecology principles in landscape architecture ans land-use planning (Barnes and Noble)

Landscape ecology has emerged in the past decade as an important and useful tool for land-use planners and landscape architects. While professionals and scholars have begun to incorporate aspects of this new field into their work, there remains a need for a summary of key principles and how they might be applied in design and planning. This volume fills that need. It is a concise handbook that lists and illustrates key principles in the field, presenting specific examples of how the principles can be applied in a range of scales and diverse types of landscapes around the world.

25 maisons en bois

L’utilisation de nouveaux matériaux et la mixité avec l’acier, la pierre ou le béton confèrent au bois un aspect plus contemporain. Les systèmes constructifs sont divers : poteaux-poutres, panneaux à ossature bois, bois massif ou modules préfabriqués. Des essences variées sont employées aussi bien en structure qu’en bardage et en aménagement intérieur. Les 25 réalisations de cet ouvrage (résidences principales ou de loisirs, certaines intégrant un local professionnel) présentent un large panorama de l’architecture en bois dans le monde : Allemagne, Irlande, Autriche, Suisse, France, Belgique, Finlande, mais aussi Brésil, États-Unis, Canada, Chine et Australie. Elles apportent des réponses à des cultures et à des climats variés. Différentes par leur échelle et leur budget, ces maisons le sont aussi par leur forme, organique, minimaliste ou plus classique. Cinq d’entre elles ont été conçues par des architectes du Vorarlberg, petite région d’Autriche devenue un creuset de l’architecture en bois contemporaine.
