DESIGN FOR SUSTAINABILITY
How can present needs be met, without compromising the needs of future generations. What needs to happen to create and maintain healthy environments, effective economies and social equity?
Raising these issues is one thing, constructing possible solutions another. Using design methodologies and a hands-on approach through prototyping, solutions are constructed. By iterating with the stakeholders, these solutions are further fine-tuned into practical results. These solutions are capable of creating change and a positive impact.
