Abstract

Sustainability or green design is an area of growing concern for many design researchers from a wide range of experiences and disciplines, including graphic designers, architects, design theorists, environmental designers, artists, students and educators. These researchers are exploring the topic of sustainability through discourse, studies, and reflection—defining what sustainable design currently means and potentially means as a new, interdisciplinary design profession.
