    ini buku sulit dikatakan 'sudah' dibaca. karena buku ini senantiasa saya baca. beberapa kali saya bolak-balik padanya, nyari kutipan darinya atau nyari fakta lain yang diungkapkannya. ini semua karena buku ini memang inspiratif. baru kali ini saya masukkan di goodreads karena justru saking deketnya sehingga terlewat oleh mata.buku ini menyambung buku papanek sebelumnya "design for the real world". termasuk juga mengulang pendefinisian "fungsi" yang secara baru dia bikin.di buku ini tindakan disain, dan keputusan-keputusan yang diambil di dalamnya ditimbang secara etik, khususnya etika lingkungan hidup. bahwa semua tindak disain yang mengubah alam 'natural' menjadi alam 'kultural' ini jelas-jelas punya konsekuensi ekologis yang belum dipikirkan mendalam dampaknya. membuat pensil,setip, kertas yang memungkinkan kita mengurai gagasan itu saja sudah punya dampak ekologis. belum lagi membangun rumah, apartemen atau bahkan kota.so, membantah heroisasi arsitek dan urban planner, buku ini justru memerlihatkan betapa lemahnya mereka... dan betapa kuatnya ide modernitas itu sudah mencederai manusia penggagasnya sendiri.terdengar romantik?agaknya demikian! he..he..

    I had the honor of having this man as a professor so it holds a special place for me.

    A good book on the need to change the way we design the entire spectrum of human artifacts, from buildings to automobiles to snackbars. Papanek discusses how product design should go far beyond aesthetics. Products can and should be designed to be energy efficient, environmentally friendly, conducive to human health, and easy to use and repair. He relates his own experiences in the design of a wide range of products and how he used his position as a designer to advocate this agenda. The text is largely engaging and easy to read. This is a good primer for anyone entering a field of product engineering or design.

    Directing how to design in Urban and Modern times ... why don't we use organic elements ? Tropical building must have more window or boxes hole to exhaust wind , more oxygen more better . More woods, leafs, ceramics and recycled paper . Processing reuse trashes to be new material . Anti pollution, illegal lgging, world wildlife fund, balaclava, and traditional design may not been degradated by modern design , but must be renewal .

    Oddly, there are quite a large number of typographical errors in this book. Despite this, it is almost as good as Design for the Real World, and it sits right next door on my bookshelf. Another must read for designers and architects.
