Ken Yeang is internationally recognised as the leadingproponent of ecological design in architecture. In 2008, he wastipped by The Guardian to be one of the '50 people who couldsave the planet'. He has built over 200 buildings globally andpublished numerous books advocating an environmentally responsiveapproach to design. He is probably best known as the inventor ofthe green skyscraper; it was his innovative idea to incorporatebioclimatic features in a high-density building type. It is forthis and his ecological urban design that he has gained a uniquelyinfluential position within architecture. Though he has authoredmany books about his work and his ideas, this is the firstdefinitive book to cover his forty-year career.

Featuring 22 of Yeang’s most significant projects,EcoArchitecture begins with his earliest work onenvironmental design, executed as a student at the ArchitecturalAssociation and then a Phd student at Cambridge in the early 1970s,and with his most recent projects with Llewelyn Davies Yeang inLondon and TRHY in Kuala Lumpur. A preface by Lord Foster and anintroductory essay by Professor John Frazer provide the fullcontext of Yeang’s thinking. The main text by contributingeditor of Architectural Record, Sara Hart, and lecturer andfreelance author, David Littlefield, provide some criticalreflection on the development of his work.
