Sustainability gone chic. Building a better future for our planet. Green architecture used to be on the fringes, but it has gone mainstream and this new volume shows, how, why, and where. This is not a technical handbook, but rather a guided tour from one end of the globe to another where sustainability has not only gone chic, but has become indispensible. Solar panels and double glazing to the rescue - the energy bill is going down! As always in the "Architecture Now" books, you can discover the latest realizations of "stars" like Peter Zumthor and Bernard Tschumi, but also catch up on the rising new generation of architects, from Korea to Vietnam, from Los Angeles to Berlin. "Green Architecture Now! 2" is the only place where a tunnel of flower pots by Olafur Eliasson and a Waste to Energy plant with a ski slope on top by BIG come together with a bang. This is no ordinary architecture book - it is an up-to-the-minute, irreverent survey of something we all care about: how to save the planet and build a greener future. Forget about categories and certainties, find out how sustainability can be fun!.

"The Whole Building Handbook" is a compendium of all the issues and strategies that architects need to understand to design and construct sustainable buildings for a sustainable society. The authors move beyond the current definition of sustainability in architecture, which tends to focus on energy-efficiency, to include guidance for architecture that promotes social cohesion, personal health, renewable energy sources, water and waste recycling systems, permaculture, energy conservation - and crucially, buildings in relation to their place. The authors offer a holistic approach to sustainable architecture and authoritative technical advice, on: how to design and construct healthy buildings, through choosing suitable materials, healthy service systems, and designing a healthy and comfortable indoor climate, including solutions for avoiding problems with moisture, radon and noise as well as how to facilitate cleaning and maintenance; how to design and construct buildings that use resources efficiently, where heating and cooling needs and electricity use is minimized and water-saving technologies and garbage recycling technologies are used; and, how to 'close' organic waste, sewage, heat and energy cycles. For example, how to design a sewage system that recycles nutrients. This book includes a section on adaptation of buildings to local conditions, looking at how a site must be studied with respect to nature, climate and community structure as well as human activities. The result is a comprehensive, thoroughly illustrated and carefully structured textbook and reference.

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.

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.

Understanding Sustainable Architecture is a review of the assumptions, beliefs, goals and bodies of knowledge that underlie the endeavour to design (more) sustainable buildings and other built developments. Much of the available advice and rhetoric about sustainable architecture begins from positions where important ethical, cultural and conceptual issues are simply assumed. If sustainable architecture is to be a truly meaningful pursuit then it must be grounded in a coherent theoretical framework. This book sets out to provide that framework. Through a series of self-reflective questions for designers, the authors argue the ultimate importance of reasoned argument in ecological, social and built contexts, including clarity in the problem framing and linking this framing to demonstrably effective actions. Sustainable architecture, then, is seen as a revised conceptualisation of architecture in response to a myriad of contemporary concerns about the effects of human activity. The aim of this book is to be transformative by promoting understanding and discussion of commonly ignored assumptions behind the search for a more environmentally sustainable approach to developmen It is argued that design decisions must be based on both an ethical position and a coherent understanding of the objectives and systems involved. The actions of individual designers and appropriate broader policy settings both follow from this understanding.

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.
