9780470181102: The Integrative Design Guide to Green Building: Redefining the Practice of Sustainability

"The members of 7group and Bill Reed are examples writ large of the kind of leadership that is taking this idea of green building and forming it into reality, by helping change minds, building practice, and design process."
—from the Foreword by S. Rick Fedrizzi President, CEO, and Founding Chair, U.S. Green Building Council

A whole-building approach to sustainability

The integrative design process offers a new path to making better green building decisions and addressing complex issues that threaten living systems. In The Integrative Design Guide to Green Building: Redefining the Practice of Sustainability, 7group's principals and integrative design pioneer Bill Reed introduce design and construction professionals to the concepts of whole building design and whole systems. With integrative thinking that reframes what sustainability means, they provide a how-to guide for architects, designers, engineers, developers, builders, and other professionals on incorporating integrative design into every phase of a project.

This practical manual:

  • Explains the philosophy and underpinnings of effective integrative design, addressing systems thinking and building and community design from a whole-living system perspective

  • Details how to implement integrative design from the discovery phase to occupancy, supported by process outlines, itemized tasks, practice examples, case studies, and real-world stories illustrating the nature of this work

  • Explores the deeper understanding of integration that is required to transform architectural practice and our role on the planet

This book, both practical and thoughtful, will help you deliver your vision of a sustainable environment.

Review:

"The book is an in-depth study of sustainable design practices, but particularly as it relates to new building construction. The book's primary audience is commercial construction consultants. However, their concepts apply to residential design, too." (The Designer, Winter 2009/2010)
