Blaine Brownell (Architecture) has contributed a chapter, "Material Ecologies," to Design Ecologies, edited by Lisa Tilder and Beth Blostein and published by Princeton Architectural Press. The book is a collection of original essays and case studies from the most innovative "green" designers. A new generation of architects "aims to recast the green movement for the twenty-first century and transform design into a positive agent by balancing the societal needs of humans with environmental considerations," according to the publisher. "Design in this sense is a larger concept having as much to do with politics and ethics as with buildings and technology."
