Sustainable Thinking at BD Online

The first article of a new regular column is up on the BD Online site. The new column is the product of an extended, and often weblog based, conversation around sustainable thinking that I have been engaged in with editor Phil Clark over the last year. This column aims to address over the coming months some of the broader questions raised by the need to rethink, in the light of emerging evidence of fast approaching planetary limits, our methods of design, production and consumption, specifically with regard to architecture-urbanism and construction. Most of the time I will be speaking from a research based position, at the intersection of academia, design education and architectural practice.
