Sustainable Design for Interior Environments, 2nd Edition, builds on the first edition s premise that the interior design profession has a social and moral responsibility to protect the health, safety, and welfare of people and the environment. The text equips professors, students, and practitioners to design sustainable interiors by addressing LEED certification, environmental concerns, ecosystems, ethics, values, worldviews, and the ways in which science and technology can be used to address environmental challenges. Through content, organization, and pedagogical features, the book integrates complex sustainability topics directly into the design process, thereby enabling readers to apply the concepts of sustainability with the same ease as they do the elements and principles of design.Figure 5.13 These window shades help to eliminate glare, are GREENGUARD certified for low-emitting products, and provide up to 88 percent ...
