One of the most influential design philosophies of the past 25 years has been Glenn Murcutt's dictum that buildings should touch the earth lightly. While architects have always sought to liberate architecture from its solid foundations through the use of new materials and spatial reconfigurations, climate change, new materials and restricted land use have given new impetus to finding lightweight solutions for our homes. Superlight houses combine two strands of thinking: that lightweight buildings have less impact on their environments, and that this lightness (visually, materially, ecologically) can lead to more open living and greater communion with their surroundings. Each of the 41 houses presented here is shown through photographs, plans and lucid explanations. Residences that appear to float, ingenious constructions using local materials, innovative structures, inflatable spaces, high-tech hyper- intelligent houses superlight takes many forms, in many places from the urban jungle of Tokyo to rural China and mountainous Chile.

This title is written for contractors and endorsed by the Associated General Contractors of America. Written specifically for contractors, this 'how-to' book enables you to meet the challenges of green building construction. You'll discover how constructing environmentally friendly, sustainable buildings influences project management, delivery, documentation, and risk. Moreover, the book guides you through these important considerations at all phases of a green construction project, including: bidding and contracting; managing green design when the contractor works as a design builder; subcontracting; procurement; construction management; and, project commissioning and closeout. This book is endorsed by the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) and was written with the assistance and advice of a specially assembled AGC task force. With a focus on the green building process from the contractor's viewpoint, the book avoids endorsing any one green building rating system in favor of presenting the business fundamentals common to them all. Throughout the presentation, flowcharts and other features offer working tools for successfully managing green construction projects. Plus, real-world case studies developed through discussions with the actual contractors involved help you understand exactly what to expect and how to best manage constructing a green building. In short, this is one book that you need to have on hand to be a part of the rapidly growing green building movement.

Reflecting the latest developments in the green building movement, and updated to include coverage of LEED 2009, "Sustainable Construction: Green Building Design and Delivery, Second Edition" guides construction and design professionals through the process of developing commercial and institutional high-performance green buildings in today's marketplace. In this revised edition, Charles Kibert delivers a detailed, and passionate, overview of the entire process of green building, covering the theory, history, state of the industry, and best practices in green building. Kibert uses not only the dominant LEED assessment system, but includes such newer ones as Green Globes and several noteworthy building assessment systems from other countries. Sections introduce the background of the green building movement and walk you through such aspects as the background of high-performance green building design, green-building assessment, the green building process, and ecological design. Broad enough to cover the needs of faculty and students in architecture, engineering, landscape architecture, interior design, and construction management, yet focused enough to serve as a reference for building owners and buyers of construction services, "Sustainable Construction" is a comprehensive look at an emerging process that is environmentally sounds while making good economic sense. Content from this book is available as two online continuing professional education courses. WileyCPE courses are available on demand, 24 hours a day, and are approved by the American Institute of Architects.
