The Upcycle: Beyond Sustainability—Designing for Abundance | Metropolis POV | Metropolis Magazine

The Upcycle: Beyond Sustainability—Designing for Abundance | Metropolis POV | Metropolis Magazine | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

…we want you to consider design on all scales, from something as small as elemental carbon to something as big as the future; from something as basic as soil to something as extravagant as caviar; from not only how we design our world but how we power it. This is upcycling: taking Cradle to Cradle and applying it not just to how people design a carpet but how they design a home, a workplace, an industry, a city. Using the Cradle to Cradle framework, we can upcycle to talk about designing not just for health but for abundance, proliferation, delight. We can upcycle to talk about not how human industry can be just “less bad,” but how it can be more good, an extraordinary positive in our world.

As the stakes of our collective behavior rise, this new image must both shock our sensibilities and inspire us into action. Such a fresh, contemporary archetype must quickly scale visibly into the heart of mass consciousness to encourage humans to become the stewards we were meant to be. To find these new emblems, we can do what the ancients did before us – look to the dynamic processes, natural morphologies and behaviors of our planet to see how she creates dynamic equilibrium in response to upheaval and change.
