How green is your blueprint? This title looks at architecture as sustainable technology.
The ecological impact of new construction, once a secondary concern, has become a crucial issue.
Badly designed buildings guzzle natural resources and pollute their surroundings; in an era of rocketing energy costs and environmental degradation, the need for a sustainable, energy-efficient architecture is paramount.
This book features the architects, artists and firms pioneering a new green architecture, and examines the emergent aesthetics.
