Purchase options and add-ons

"Green" architecture is not only beautiful but imperative, making this volume indispensable for anyone interested in sustainable design. This book is the most thorough overview to be published on environmentally sound building and planning practices and includes project descriptions, photographs, and detailed drawings that demonstrate that sustainability is not just good for the planet, but also offers new opportunities for creativity and innovation. Beginning with a survey of evolving strategies to step more lightly on the earth, like "graywater" recovery, green roofs, contextual design, and human-scale architecture, the book features essays by such noted experts as Andres Duany, Victor Deupi, Bruce King, Stephen A. Mouzon, and Norman Crowe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting read
Reviewed in the United States on 26 December 2012
This had some fascinating information. I didn't realize until I purchased it that it was a collection of essays and works by a variety of authors, as opposed to one writer, so it's hard for me to make a summary of the entire book. It covered a wide variety of topics, everything from using locally-sourced materials for new construction; to designing communities to make them pedestrian-friendly. Since I'm a visual learner, it helped a lot that the illustrations and photos were relevant and did a lot to clarify some of the concepts.
