    57. 57. Sustainable Design?  Also called environmental design, environmentally sustainable design, environmentally-conscious design, etc.)  Def.: The philosophy of designing physical objects, the built environment, and services to comply with the principles of economic, social, and ecological sustainability.  Its application range from the microcosm — small objects for everyday use, through to the macrocosm — buildings, cities, and the earth's physical surface.
    58. 58. Sustainable Design?  Can be applied in the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, urban planning, engineering, graphic design, industrial design, interior design, and fashion design.  The intention: To "eliminate negative environmental impact completely through skillful, sensitive design".  A general reaction to global environmental crises, the rapid growth of economic activity and human population, depletion of natural resources, damage to ecosystems, and loss of biodiversity.
    59. 59. Common Principles of SD  Use Low-impact materials  choose non-toxic, sustainably-produced or recycled materials which require little energy to process  Energy efficiency  use manufacturing processes and produce products which require less energy  Quality and durability  longer-lasting and better-functioning products will have to be replaced less frequently, reducing the impacts of producing replacements.
    60. 60. Common Principles of SD  Design for reuse and recycling  Products, processes, and systems should be designed for performance in a commercial 'afterlife'.  Apply Design Impact Measures for total carbon footprint and life-cycle assessment for any resource used ○ It is increasingly required and available. ○ Healthy Buildings - sustainable building design aims to create buildings that are not harmful to their occupants nor to the larger environment. An important emphasis is on indoor environmental quality, especially indoor air quality.
    61. 61. Common Principles of SD  Renewability  materials should come from nearby (local or bioregional), sustainably- managed renewable sources that can be composted when their usefulness has been exhausted.
