Designers, Visionaries and Other Stories by Jonathan Chapman

Book Description

Designers, Visionaries and Other Stories unpacks the complex and crucial debates surrounding sustainable design to deliver a compelling manifesto for change, at a time of looming ecological crisis, mounting environmental legislation and limited progress. This is a book about sustainable design, by the leading sustainable design thinkers, for creative practitioners, professionals, students and academics. This challenging work provides the reader with a rich resource of future visions, critical propositions, creative ideas and design strategies for working towards a sustainable tomorrow, today. The authors boldly present alternative understandings of sustainable design, to curate a challenging, sometimes uncomfortable and always provocative, collection of essays by some of the world s leading sustainable design thinkers. The result is an impacting and polemical anthology that reinvigorates the culture of critique that, in previous years, has empowered design with the qualities of social, environmental and economic revolution.

Relative Category Theory and Geometric Morphisms by Jonathan Chapman Relative Category Theory and Geometric Morphisms, Hardback (December 1991)

Topos theory provides an important setting and language for much of mathematical logic and set theory. This book presents a convenient and natural solution to the treatment of geometric morphisms in this setting and shows how this may be applied to topics such as the relative Giraud theorem.
