Gray World, Green Heart : Technology, Nature, and Sustainability in th-ExLibrary

Sobre este produto

Synopsis
This book examines the conflict between technology and nature in the industrialized world. It describes three basic forces: topophilia (love of the land), technophilia (love and dependence on technology) and technophobia (fear of the side-effects of technology) and their interplay in the environment. It describes how the conflict of these forces has created the current environmental crisis and makes a powerful case for sustainable design as a solution.
