Product Overview

The ecological impact of new construction, once a secondary concern, has become a crucial issue in recent years. Badly designed buildings guzzle natural resources and pollute their surroundings. In an era of rocketing energy costs and environmental degradation, the need for a sustainable, energy-efficient architecture is paramount. This book examines the emergent innovations, aesthetics, and pioneers of green architecture, including such artists, architects, and firms as Tadao Ando, Shigeru Ban, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Zaha Hadid, Morphosis, and many more.
