The author of this book aims to encourage an awareness of sustainability as it is implemented across all areas of planning and design, and the ability to think and act on this knowledge. This book will explore in genuine depth the sustainable strategies that could be applied, along with the practical work of key figures in the built environment, setting these against historical experiences and traditional cultures. It also aimes to revive the discourse around these subjects. Achieving this will require the involvement of architects and structural, energy and environmental engineers, construction businesses and specialists, research institutes and universities. The five chapters and 333 show-cased projects reflect important stages in the architectural and engineering-based design process, stages which need to be addressed when dealing with sustainable strategies in the built environment.

Editorial Reviews

"This documentation includes project description, color illustrations (usually exterior and interior views), plans, elevations, and sections. Consisting of over 2,000 images, the illustrative matter will be welcomed by readers, researchers, and designers who can rarely find in one place comprehensive visual documentation about one work. Although the images are relatively small, the book is exceptionally well sourced so that readers can follow up with the referenced sources. At nearly 600 pages, this book is a goldmine of information that can inform and inspire further research in sustainable design, an area of continuing relevance." --E. H. Teague, University of Oregon, CHOICE
