Sustainability and Beauty

Today's topic is built once again around sustainability. In this case, it involves the idea of beauty in sustainability.
 

  • Are sustainability and beauty concepts separated by nature?
  • How can we merge aesthetics into ecological approaches?


Specially this second questions is one I want to deepen in through my path in design. Some people even consider green design and great design to inherently follow completely different quests, being almost incompatible. Does it have to be this way?

Rethinking Sustainability

Rethinking Sustainability

One subject that has been a focus of interest in my recent studies is sustainability. It is “on trend”, everybody speaks about it, but we should really stop and think about what the concept means to us.

We must start thinking about sustainable develpment in a deeper and broader way.

Many believe this deals only with energy efficiency, carbon emissions and ecomaterials, but in most cases it goes beyond that.

Generally the bigger problem is with use.
