Review:

"To prevent the worst of climate change, high-performance buildings are now a necessity, and this book is a great resource to make such buildings a reality. It clearly recognizes that high performance is not just a technical challenge, but also requires an understanding of people's behaviors and the complexity of social arrangements."

Norbert Lechner, Auburn University, USA

"From design and analysis, to project construction and delivery, to new materials and techniques, the book carefully collects top authors, content, and case studies to help explicate what the editor describes as "energy-free architectural design". As well illustrated as it is written, this book convincingly merges the range of historical, technical, theoretical, and architectural obligations that presuppose our understanding of higher-performance buildings."

Kiel Moe, Harvard Graduate School of Design, USA

"This book insightfully spans some difficult gaps that have hindered our ecological aspirations in residential design: between the warm sense of home and the cold hard benchmarks of performance; from aesthetic to ethical considerations, between the hardware and the integrated systems; between available technology and material construction; and between simulation models and real-world cases"

Leonard Bachman, Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture, University of Houston, USA

Franca Trubiano is a Registered Architect (O.A.Q., Int. Assoc.
