'"A Green Vitruvius" is a wonderful resource that certainly lives up to its subtitle' - "Environmental Building News". 'Provides an excellent holistic approach to the subject' - "Eco Tech". 'This publication has much to recommend it, and is one of a number of good books on sustainable architecture produced by the science publishers James & James' - "The Architectural Review". Green, or sustainable, or environmentally-friendly architecture is not simply an environmental benefit. It is place-sensitive; in a globalising world it leads to location-specific architecture by responding to local climatic conditions and using local materials. It also offers better architectural quality with more natural and fewer artificial inputs; not only is less more, less is also beautiful. The book is in independent parts. Four sections structure advice in accordance with the design and construction process, the issues to be considered, the strategies to be adopted and the elements of green design. A fifth section advises on design evaluation. Sustainability is one of many considerations for the practising architect. This book is for the experienced practitioner anywhere who wishes to make a more sustainable architecture whether or not they have yet acquired any particular expertise in the subject. It will also serve as a valuable introduction to the subject, and provide a clear and attractive text for students.
