This book is a highly illustrated 'atlas’, taking the reader on a journey via four distinct ‘steps’ (recycling, reuse, reduce, closed loop), from a linear economy towards a system emulating the natural world, i.e. a circular economy.  Featuring over 25 inspiring case studies describing design exemplars from the worlds of textile and fashion design, product design, architecture and urban design, this book's purpose is to show designers how they can help dramatically reduce the negative impact humans have on Planet Earth by successfully navigating the emerging fields of resource management and the circular economy.

Each step is supplemented with an in depth interview with an expert who is successfully tackling one or more of these challenges that present all designers today and includes contributory essays from, among others, Professor Walter Stahel of the Product-Life Institute, and Professor Jonathan Chapman, author of 'Emotionally Durable Design’.

Kimpian, J; H. Hartman; S.Pelsmakers
Energy performance feedback is an essential tool in addressing the current climate crisis. However, this is not simply another theoretical text about energy performance in buildings. This book is for anyone who wants to better understand how energy is used in buildings, and how to drive down operational energy use – whether you’re an architect, student, client, building services engineer, contractor, building operator or other stakeholder.

Most of us have to work. But is work just a means to an end? In trying to make a living, have we lost touch with the idea of making things well? This book offers an exploration of craftsmanship - the desire to do a job well for its own sake - as a template for living.
