Abstract:

Design, Ecology, Politics describes a powerful role for design in making sustainable ways of living not only possible but desirable. It examines the relationships between three domains. Part I: Design explains how new ways of living are created and made appealing. Part II: Ecology explores the philosophical problems at the root of the environmental crisis and considers how design can either contribute to or address these problems. Part III: Politics describes why sustainable transitions are currently so difficult to achiever. By theorizing design, ecological and socio-political theory concurrently, Boehnert shows how social relations are constructed, reproduced and obfuscated in ways which often cause environmental and social harms. Where design theory fails to recognize the historical roots of unsustainable practice, it reproduces old errors. With the understanding that design negotiates the intimately interwined space between self, society and the environment, design can more effectively engage with complex contemporary challenges. The transformative potential of design is dependent on deep-reaching analysis of the problems design attempts to address. With this ecologically literate and critically engaged foundation, design is a practice primed to facilitate the creation of sustainable and just futures. Book jacket.
