On each of the cards, literature on the specific topic of the card has been included. For more general readings on materials (also in sustainable design), on sustainable design and on methods use, some selected references can be found below.

It’s important to state that these are just a few references from a steadily growing field, multiple people are working on these concepts and new things are published. Thus if you think that something is missing, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
