Canada is on the cutting edge when it comes to designing sustainable buildings — buildings that use resources carefully and significantly reduce their impact on the Earth. Sustainable building design means creating buildings that are healthier and more comfortable for their occupants, consequently enhancing productivity. It also minimizes the generation of toxic materials and waste. As a byproduct of all this, sustainable buildings represent some of the most innovative and aesthetically pleasing architecture built today. Canada Innovates: Sustainable Building includes essays on the history of sustainable design and its future directions by architects, builders, and practitioners involved in the construction of sustainable buildings. The book also provides extensive resources on sustainable design and building for those searching for ways to make their own buildings greener.
