"The choice of materials was determined by availability and cost. To ensure  sustainability we needed to use local, cheap, and abundant materials.

"This is sustainability: the revolution in our minds and in our tools. It will take time but there is no other way.... because we have to. If not, we shall not meet the requirements of the next generations.

 

             Francoise Helene Jourda, Jourda Architectes, ECOWEEK The Book#1

"People should be able to live exactly the way they want, or even better, while maintaining a sustainable lifestyle. Essentially it is to approach the question of sustainability not as a moral dilemma but as a design challenge.

 

                                                           Bjarke Ingels, BIG, ECOWEEK The Book#1

50 architects, landscape architects, designers and environmental leaders from 15 countries around the world, share their vision to inspire, provoke and educate.

 

In articles, interviews, project presentations and manifestos, they join their voices and vision on sustainability, sustainable design, urbanism and architecture, to amplify a message of social, economic and environ-mental sustainability, embodied in their work.

 

The contributing authors to this publication are part of the extended ECOWEEK ‘family.’ They have lectured and/or led ECOWEEK workshops in cities around the world. Among them Kengo Kuma, Bjarke Ingels, Francoise-Helene Jourda, Diebedo Francis Kere, Michael Sorkin, Gernot Minke, Prof. David Orr, Robert Swan, OBE, professionals, leaders and educators, young professionals and students.

The purpose is to promote good practices by leaders, professionals and environmental educators from around the world, and to inspire others to pursue their own path to sustainability. ECOWEEK The Book#1 marks the 10-year anniversary of ECOWEEK activity!
