Back to the Sustainable Future explores the historical conditions for, and development of, sustainable design. Today, sustainability is an essential parameter in all design practice, education, research and mediation. However, this ‘green revolution' is a glaringly white spot on the design historical map, still awaiting its scholarly historicization.


Back to the Sustainable Future investigates how designers, educators, theorists, critics, promoters, consumers and users have conceptualized visions of sustainability in the history of design since the 1960s. The aim is to trace how notions of sustainability have migrated across time and socio-cultural domains, from design education and social activism via commercial and industrial contexts to mainstream media and consumer behavior. By doing so, we are addressing a significant lacuna in design historical scholarship and thereby expanding the subject matter of the field.
