Design for the real world : human ecology and social change by Victor J Papanek( Book )

121 editions published between 1970 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Design for the Real World has been translated into twenty-three languages since it first appeared in 1971; it has become the world's most widely read book on design and is a required text in many design and architectural schools. This second edition offers a blueprint for survival in the third millennium. Victor Papanek's lively and instructive guide shows how design can reduce pollution, overcrowding, starvation, obsolescence and other modern ills. He leads us away from 'fetish objects for a wasteful society' towards a new age of morally and environmentally responsible design. Professor Papanek was a highly distinguished designer, educator, lecturer and writer, widely acknowledged for his visionary ideas on design theory. He was Professor at the School of Architecture and Urban Design at the University of Kansas at the time of his death in 1998
