William McDonough: The Wisdom of Designing Cradle To Cradle

I have to admit that i'm actually quite embarrassed that i haven't posted about William McDonough before now.  His book Cradle to Cradle is pretty much THE sustainability bible as far as how things should be designed in the future. It's an amazing read and he's truly a visionary in the field.

For a quick taste, check out this talk he gave in 2005 for TED.  It's only about 20 minutes and make sure to watch until the end as he describes one of 12 sustainable cities that he was asked to design for the Chinese government.  Pretty unbelievable stuff.

Special thanks to Lacey for sending the link.
