Bundle of Relations

Ioanna Theocharopoulou

Before sustainability can help us plan the future of our cities, we need to expand on the potential meanings, capabilities, and implications and sheer complexity of the term.

The most pressing question today is not simply how to design in a technologically savvy, energy-saving way, but whether–or how– design may help restore man’s “bundle of relations” to other living beings and the planet. Developing a vocabulary for discussing sustainability could broaden the discourse both within the design professions and beyond.
