According to IA Interior Architects, sustainable design is the opportunity to improve productivity in the workplace and the quality of life.
Dwell magazine put out a green design issue for the November 2007 issue. In an article entitled "Sustainability 24/7," Sam Grawe rants about how tired he is about sustainability. Yes, he supports sustainability and saving the planet but I guess what hes trying to say is that people should just start taking action and stop talking. He also thinks that sustainability is a fad (like acid wash pants). Sam makes a good point, "Takling environmental issues through design is at the very core of what we believe makes good design good, not a self-congratulatory cross-marketed issue theme."
