Resources for Economics & Technologies: Tools

  1. Lo—TEK: Design by Radical Indigenism by Julia Watson provides a blueprint for sustainable architecture in the 21st century. For designers of the built environment, it is a first-ever compendium of overlooked, time-tested practices - design technologies from indigenous groups around the world. And for Watson, the book is a means to name, document, and create a toolkit for a design movement. “Lo-TEK,” is built on lesser known technologies, traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) and indigenous cultural practices and mythologies.
