In his book “Small is Beautiful”, the world famous economist E.F.Schumacher wrote: “In the excitement over the unfolding of his scientific and technical powers, modern man has built a system of production that ravishes nature and a type of society that mutilates man. If only there were more and more wealth, everything else, it is thought, would fall in place. Money is considered to be all powerful; if it could not actually buy non-material values, such as justice, harmony, beauty or even health, it could circumvent the need for them or compensate for their lost.”

Money can buy consumer products, but not love, passion, harmony or happiness. Our modern built environment is clear evidence of our modern industrialized consumer society’s ignorance.
