Public Interest Design Practice Guidebook: Seed Methodology, Case Studies, and Critical Issues is the first book to demonstrate that public interest design has emerged as a viable profession. It’s an important field guide not only for the design profession but for our environment and for our communities.
While design is usually associated with aesthetics, this text reminds us that the profession is much deeper and richer than this. Every design decision affects our environment, our society and our economy.
The book provides clear professional standards of practice following SEED (Social Economic Environmental Design) methodology, the first step-by-step process supporting public interest designers. The book features an Issues Index composed of ninety critical social, economic, and environmental issues, illustrated with thirty case study projects representing eighteen countries and four continents, all cross-referenced, to show you how every human issue is a design issue.
