9780419199007: The Environmental Tradition: Studies in the architecture of environment

This text brings together a unique collection of writing by a leading researcher and critic which outlines the evolution of the environmental dimension of architectural theory and practice in the past twenty-five years. It deals with the transformation of the environmental design field which was brought about by the growth of energy awareness in the 1970s and 1980s, and places environmental issues in the broader theoretical and historical context in architecture.

From the Back Cover:

In the last quarter of the twentieth century there has been a renewal of interest in the environmental function of buildings. The essays collected in this book provide an account of developments in the theory of environmental design in architecture during this period and illustrate the implications of theory for practice through a series of critical discussions of significant buildings. Central themes of the book are to show how environmental concerns have shaped the nature of buildings throughout history and, with the benefit of an historical perspective, to indicate how the new environmental priorities of the buildings of late industrial societies may be addressed.

Review:

""The Environmental Tradition provides by example the mechanism for a collaboration between architectural history, design theory and practice which is...likely to motivate an architectural readership...."
-"The Architect's Journal
..."this very clearly organised book with its self-contained chapters, is one to keep by your bed and reread again and again."
-"Architectural Research Quarterly
""The Environmental Tradition should be read by all architects and engineers interested in designing buildings with an environmental bias."
-"The Architectural Review
"Dean Hawkes' collection of well-argued essays, ...makes a lucid case for a return to passive control over the environment, using the eternal qualities of light and structure as the way of establishing a sustainable, architectural future...as lucid as one might wish...."
-"Architecture Today
