About this title

Synopsis:

Sustainability is a key issue. As governments worldwide come under pressure to deliver a healthier environment, they are starting to legislate for architects to produce greener design. This title will provide a vital overview for those looking for an introduction to green architecture on an international level. As well as including projects, the title will provide an essential outline of the green movement and the influence of key practitioners and thinkers upon architectural practice worldwide.

From the Back Cover:

Green is the major architectural movement of our time. Throughout the world architects are producing sustainable buildings, united solely by their desire to preserve the environment and precious natural resources. Rather than a universal style, conforming to a common language, green architecture is open to local and individual interpretation. Moulded by a whole range of forces - climatic, cultural, professional and social, it is ultimately an architecture of great richness and complexity

This important title of Architectural Design cuts across cultures and building typologies, and includes architecture from diverse geographical regions. There are special features on South Africa, Austalia, Singapore, Hong Kong, The Netherlands and North America, as well as essential introductory essays. Work is brought together from disparate parts of the workld, with little-known buildings being published alongside those of world-famous architects. The volume is interspersed by 'Green Questionnaires', which, offer a unique insight into the view of premier international architects on this subject.
