Review:

This second edition improves on an already exceptional resource for practitioners, students, and those interested in green design by taking us through beginning design stages of an integrated design process, primary issues to consider and the strategies and tools to implement them in design. It gives the professional community both historical data and forward-thinking information to guide and assess design. This book is essential to every designer's library. Professor Alison G. Kwok, PhD, AIA

The Second edition of A Green Vitruvius is a welcome and timely publication offered to practicing architects who wish to provide an exemplary service in designing and realising sustainable buildings and space. Eleven years since its first edition, this is an up-to-date architectural manual guiding its readers through process of design and construction, discussing issues and elements, strategies and evaluation tools for green design , planning and construction. The content is developed within broader context of the EU regulatory framework, the international commitments and response to climate change and need for rational use of energy resources and the international declarations by professional architectural bodies like the UIA and the Architects Council of Europe. The rich and well-illustrated reference material makes the publication relevant internationally and applicable by green-conscious architects' practices in different and place-specific contexts. The renewed edition of A Green Vitruvius is a valuable resource for practical application and continual professional development of architects. It resonates well with the voice of the Architects Council of Europe and its ambition to lead the architectural profession through an evolution and aspiration to assert itself as the integrative, holistic and leading force within complex developments of this time. Selma Harrington, ACE President

This second edition of A Green Vitruvius provides clear and concise introductions to all the key areas and issues of sustainable environmental design and will be particularly appreciated for its step-by-step guidance on each stage of the making of buildings, from inception to commissioning, operation and refurbishment. Dr Simos Yannas, Architectural Association Graduate School, London
