This book takes a sweeping view of the ways we build things, beginning at the scale of products and interiors, to that of regions and global systems. In doing so, it answers questions on how we effect and are affected by our environment and explores how components of what we make—from products, buildings, and cities—are interrelated, and why designers and planners must consider these connections.

Drawing from the expertise of thirty prominent academics in their respective fields, this Second Edition of The Built Environment is a collaborative work that takes an integrated and global view of the components and contexts that compose the built environment—the products, interiors, structures, landscapes, cities, and regions—within the context of the earth's life support system. This important work encourages readers to explore the interconnectedness of human-created objects, places, and systems that enrich our life.
The Second Edition of The Built Environment builds on the solid foundation of the first edition and has been thoroughly updated to present a timely exploration of advances in sustainable design and planning. This new edition of The Built Environment:
Serves as a comprehensive introduction to design and planning
Emphasizes collaboration, professional responsibility, and sustainability
Brings together in one volume the contributions from leading designers and planners
Forms a holistic understanding of virtually all aspects of the built environment
The Built Environment is filled with the knowledge and experience of well-known product and interior designers, architects and engineers, landscape designers, urban designers, and city, regional, and global planners. The contributors demonstrate the importance of collaborative effort in dealing with complex subjects in a unified and holistic framework, fostering constructive ideas, positive developments, and a sustainable world.
