Housekeeping By Design

David Brody

University of Chicago Press

In this vignette, Brody briefly introduces his research and travel in Kauai. He describes the island’s beautiful scenery and contrasts his own view of Kauai as a vacation destination with the view of the housekeepers at the Starwood hotels, who view the island as a workplace. Brody mentions the difficulty of incorporating sustainable design in the hotel industry without compromising labor conditions.
