The book GLOBAL DESIGN examines the possibilities for scaling design solutions to address global warming.

Global warming poses new challenges to the architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design communities. The immediate response has been a turn toward a host of energy-saving technologies. What has rarely been addressed, however, is the problem of scale. How can designers make sure that global solutions do not come at the expense of local cultures and environments?

By placing human rational, emotional, technological, and social needs at the center of our environmental concerns, the book GLOBAL DESIGN proposes a new global design initiative. The aim is to develop a language of design that can create proximity between individual responsibility and the current global environmental crisis. These featured projects showcase leading-edge design innovations at multiple scales.
