"One of the most important things to understand is that consumption is a question of demand, and demand is dependent on design. Your demand for petrol depends on the design of your car, and your demand for a car depends on how the city you live in is designed.
So if you can change that, you can change consumption in the end."Stefan Behling, Foster & Partners
Louisiana Museum of Modern Art (and what a great museum it is) have an interesting exhibition, Green Architecture for the Future, (on until december) that i visited earlier this summer, lots of interesting ideas and thoughts and you even felt some optimism for our future! but make sure you have lots of time to go through the exhibition..
