Sustainability, environmental impact, green design, urban sprawl - all terms that have, in recent years, become part of the collective consciousness in the ongoing dialogue about climate change and global warming. Enabling Solutions for Sustainable Living presents student work that explores these issues and exemplifies the application of "enabling solutions." Here, members of a new generation of designers - students from the University of Calgary's Faculty of Environmental Design - come together to identify some of the sustainability challenges of contemporary suburban living. Exploring such issues as quality of life, community cohesiveness, and environmental impacts of city living, workshop participants present their research graphically, illustrating key concepts, the resources required, and the desired outcomes. In addition to the student work showcased here, Enabling Solutions includes essays by Ezio Manzini, Stuart Walker, and Barry Wylant that contextualize the central ideas and elaborate on the theoretical basis for the workshop.
