Ann Thorpe on The Central Debates of Sustainable Design.
1/15/08: University of Washington, Kane Hall – room 210.
Talk and Q&A at 7:00 – 8:15 pm Reception to follow until 9:00.

Ms Thorpe is pursuing research on cultural aspects of sustainable design, underpinned by theories of human needs, sustainable consumption and design process and practice. Her work grows out of research she conducted for her book The Designer’s Atlas of Sustainability (Island Press) and embraces economic and cultural elements of sustainability, along with ecological ones. She is particularly interested in the role of digital economies and information networks in sustainable design.
