about

Today's architects and engineers are increasingly being asked to address issues of sustainability in our changing world. Architecture of Change presents outstanding architectural projects that combine creativity, scientific knowledge, technical innovation, social engagement and a strong sense of responsibility to address environmental challenges. The book is based on the Zumtobel Group Award for Sustainability and Humanity in the Built Environment. Architecture of Change features recently built and realised projects that ???????????? in addition to their exceptional architectural quality ???????????? make a notable contribution to a liveable and sustainable future. But the book also covers current initiatives that promote innovative research in this sector and thus encourage an emerging generation of environmentally aware architects and urban planners. Architecture of Change contains over forty international projects by architects that include Pritzker Prize winner Thom Mayne, Steven Holl, Kenneth Yang, Sauerbruch & Hutton, Architecture for Humanity and Rural Studio. The included work ranges from development projects in Bangladesh, Nepal and Africa to open source Internet platforms, experimental approaches to flood prevention and modern high-rises for an urban context. The book also includes essays by and interviews with internationally renowned experts in architecture, science, economics and politics. Its impressive examples of pioneering architectural projects make Architecture of Change an inspiring book for all those interested in contemporary architecture and questions of sustainability. Because it shows visionary solutions that are improving our environment in real ways, thepublication is a relevant reference for both a professional and general audience.
