Everyone who touches this book on my coffee table is instantly immersed. Design Like You Give A Damn showcases low-cost sustainable solutions that solve some of the most troubling issues of the developing world. Colorful pages display more than 80 innovative and contemporary solutions to such urgent needs as basic shelter, health care, education, and access to clean water, energy, and sanitation. Alice Waters states, “This book brings forth the values of sustainability and diversity in a beautiful way—values which are as essential to our housing as they are to food we eat.” A very powerful and thought provoking read.
