Do energy-efficient cars have to be boring? Are green buildings necessarily unsightly? Is sustainability incompatible with beauty? Lance Hosey’s answer is a resounding 'no,' and in The Shape of Green he argues that for far too long sustainable design has neglected aesthetics. If green is to fulfill its promise, it must be both efficient and appealing. Hosey shows how design at all scales, from products to buildings to cities, can effectively marry art and science.
