Seda Magazine Archive



SEDA has been producing regular newsletters and magazines since its inception. It is fascinating to observe the areas of interest and concern within the realm of ecological design raised within the pages of these publications and to note how the organisation have often been first to raise issues which have subsequently become mainstream. This area of the website will ultimately document the contents of these publications dating back to the early nineties as an archiving process continues.
