The "green building revolution" is happening right now. This book is its chronicle and its manifesto. Written by industry insider Jerry Yudelson, "The Green Building Revolution" introduces readers to the basics of green building and to the projects and people that are advancing this movement. With interviews and case studies, it does more than simply report on the revolution; it shows readers why and how to start thinking about designing, building, and operating high-performance, environmentally aware (LEED-certified) buildings on conventional budgets.Evolving quietly for more than a decade, the green building movement has found its voice. Its principles of human-centered, environmentally sensitive development have reached a critical mass of architects, engineers, builders, developers, professionals in government, and consumers. Green buildings are showing us how we can have healthier indoor environments that use far less energy and water than conventional buildings do. The federal government, eighteen states, and nearly fifty US cities already require new public buildings to meet "green" standards. According to Yudelson, this is just the beginning." The Green Building Revolution" describes the many "revolutions" that are taking place today: in commercial buildings, schools, universities, public buildings, health care institutions, housing, property management, and neighborhood design. In a clear, highly readable style, Yudelson outlines the broader "journey to sustainability" influenced by the green building revolution and provides a solid business case for accelerating this trend.Illustrated with more than 50 photos, tables, and charts, and filled with timely information, "The Green Building Revolution" is the definitive description of a major movement that's poised to transform our world.
