“Uninformed design and planning choices contribute to the climate conundrum in direct ways – by perpetuating inefficiency and fossil fuel dependence and by missing a myriad of choices that could lower destructive levels of resource consumption and help sustain the
resilience of planetary ecosystems,” said Professor Droege.
Climate Design features living projects and the beliefs and ideas of a wide range of professionals from around the world, including Professor Tony Wong, Professor Richard Weller, Jose Mantilla, Lester Partridge, Jason Veale, Cathryn Chatburn, Ichsani Wheeler, James Rosenwax and Jon Shinkfield.
“The best way of dealing with climate change is to embrace the facts and start working on the future now.” said Jason Prior, AECOM executive director, Planning, Design + Development.

The book is available through publisher ORO editions, Amazon and in bookstores worldwide.
