Building on the special edition "Aspects of Design Management" (Volume 3:1, 2007), this publication brings together the rapidly developing field of design management with that of environmental sustainability. Eight articles drawn from around the world help to provide some critical insights into the relationship between ecological sustainability and the application of design management in a number of different contexts. Contributions range from early policy decisions and public procurement options; to corporate social responsibility of architects and the promotion of materials and products to specifiers; to encouraging change and a design process evaluation method; and, to investigations into the role and contribution of construction design managers and facilities managers to a sustainable built environment. Collectively the articles provide a unique, multi-disciplinary, contribution to the theoretical development of the design management field as well as guidance on the practical application of methods and tools.

Cultural sustainability is a very important aspect of the overall sustainability framework and is regarded as the 'fourth pillar' alongside the other three: environmental, economic, and social sustainability. However, the concept is neither fully explored, nor widely accepted or recognized. This book elicits the interplay of 'nature-culture-architecture' and theorizes the concept of 'cultural sustainability' and 'culturally sustainable architecture.' It identifies four key themes in Chinese philosophy: Harmony with Heaven, Harmony with Earth, Harmony with Humans, and Harmony with Self , along with Greek philosopher Aristotle's physics: form, space, matter, and time, it sets them as criteria to evaluate the renewed and new courtyard housing projects constructed in China since the 1990s.Using an innovative architectural and social science approach, this book examines the political, economic, social, and spatial factors that affect cultural sustainability. Supported by a multiplicity of data including: field surveys, interviews with residents, architects, and planners, time diaries, drawings, photos, planning documents, observation notes, and real estate brochures, the book proposes new courtyard garden house design strategies that promote healthy communities and human care for one another, a concept that is universally applicable. The volume is a first opportunity to take a holistic view, to encompass eastern and western, tangible and intangible, cultures in the theorization of 'cultural sustainability' and 'culturally sustainable architecture.' It is a comprehensive contribution to architectural theory.

  • Public objects
  • Conclusions.
The book presents Slovenia?s contemporary timber architecture. Thanks to its abundant forests, Slovenia has preserved the tradition of wood construction. As much as 60% of its surface is covered by forests. Slovenia is also the third most forested country in Europe. The high share of forest-covered surface allows for a sustainable production of high-quality wood. In the past, wood was used primarily in the construction of farm buildings, but now timber architecture is used for everything from residences and office buildings to public buildings such as community centres and schools. Timber construction is becoming increasingly popular. Apart from larger companies taking this approach, a great number of wooden houses have sprung up, built either on personal initiative or with the support of carpenter workshops. Slovenian timber architecture has taken a new approach to environmental and energy-efficiency problems and received great international recognition. The book discusses over fifty projects built over a ten-year period, and includes descriptions, photographs, and plans. The projects include residential areas, administration, and office, as well as tourist, educational, and industrial buildings. Timber architecture is presented as an integral part of the Slovenian landscape. The monograph will be useful to designers and future experts in their planning of optimal timber buildings and will highlight the main benefits of using timber construction.

There has been a perception in some quarters that 'green' buildings are worthy but dull. This is a misconception - a good number of such buildings have won design awards and illustrate that a design approach focused on resource efficiency and minimum environmental impact is not incompatible with visual delight. Sustainable architecture can indeed 'lift the spirit' as well as save the planet.The book brings together an inspiring series of case studies of recent buildings (completed after 2000) that demonstrate a range of different sustainable construction techniques and, importantly, combine this with architectural excellence. Broken down into five sections - Work Spaces, Educational Buildings, Housing, Refurbishment Projects and Public Buildings - the case studies within each highlight a wide variety of approaches to design and technical issues. Many of the projects featured are considered 'cutting edge', going well beyond the requirements of the Building Regulations and adopting innovative technologies such as solar energy collection, biomass heating and grey water recycling.Although principally aimed at those involved in procuring buildings - clients, developers, agents, architects, engineers, quantity surveyors and contractors - the book will also appeal to academics, students and those who have a general interest in sustainable design and the environment.

This landmark publication examines the need for establishing a universal framework for assessing the sustainability of a place that can be used for any place, in any part of the world. Using two case studies of two towns (San Gimignano, Italy and Ludlow, England) as a backdrop, the book examines their distinctive features and develops a framework for assessing their energy and environmental capabilities in light of their social, economic, political and cultural prerequisites. Discussion includes such key aspects of sustainability as geological formation, climate, external dependencies, communication and infrastructure, historical heritage, community and permanence of population. * Includes the author's own annotated drawings that complement the text. * Examines the background and current state of sustainability and provides practical examples of assessments of specific localities * Based on the author's own research.

Sustainable Preservation takes a nuanced look at the hundreds of choices that adaptive reuse requires architects to make-from ingenious ways to redeploy existing structural elements to time-honored techniques for natural ventilation to creation of wetlands that restore a site's natural biological functions. In addition, Sustainable Preservation presents 50 case studies of projects-schools, houses, offices, stores, museums, and government buildings-that set new standards for holistic approaches to adaptive reuse and sustainability. The author covers design issues, from building location to lighting systems, renewable power options, stormwater handling, and building envelope protection and integrity. The book also reviews operational issues, including materials choices for low lifetime maintenance, green housekeeping, and indoor air quality.

Sustainability is arguably the most vital concern in architectural design today. As the world becomes ever more densely populated, with the majority of people now living in cities, it is essential for architects, engineers and urban planners to be fully aware of the impact of their activities on the natural environment, as well as the effects of buildings on their occupants. Sustainable Ecosystems and the Built Environment offers guidelines for professional practice and highlights the potential of radical new technologies to increase and maintain the quality of life on this planet. Compiled from a series of articles which appeared in the cutting-edge journal Architectural Design, it examines topics related to the effect of buildings on both their immediate environment and the global ecosystem, as well as methods of making buildings healthy places to live and work - from heating, lighting and air circulation to the use of colour and odour to affect mood. All the key issues of sustainability are discussed, and backed up with evidence from 'green' projects in which the authors' sustainable engineering firm Battle McCarthy has been involved. This book offers an informative, practical and thought-provoking read for anyone involved in the design of the built environment.
