A Sustainable Design Bookshelf

"Sustainism in the twenty-first century will be what modernism was in the last…
In the twentieth century, whether we knew it or not, our world was shaped by modernist values, from the design of our cities and our homes and our sense of place, to our technologies and our ideas of progress. Sustainism recasts our relationship to all of these things.
The Sustainist world we are making is both globalized and local, ecological as well as technological. Farmer's markets, open source information on the web, green economics, carbon footprint reduction and social media are all seen as part of the movement towards a Sustainist future." –Michiel Schwarz and Joost Elffers, Sustainism is the New Modernism.

A Sustainable Design Bookshelf

Winy Maas's new thinktank The Why Factory (T?F) -- whose project Automatic City is presented above -- are publishing a series of books with NAi entitled the Future City Series. Visionary Cities (NAi, 2010) opens the series.

"Sustainism is the new modernism."
