It also explains the real, pragmatic steps that can be taken to mitigate the all-too-common damage that man-made structures inflict on the natural environment, including low-energy design, bioclimatic design, recycling and disposal of building materials and waste and ecological landuse planning.
Adrian marked it as to-read Jul 30, The text contains case studies of low-environmental impact building designs from around the world and demonstrates the new emphasis on using building materials with long life-span and low maintenance costs.

Tia rated it liked it Apr 26, Be the first to write a review. Are there emerging building materials or technology that your are excited about, the hold the potential to facilitate the transformation of the built environment toward a sustainable future? Yes, most tall buildings are fundamentally unsustainable buildings unless located over transportation hubs.
If this built form shall be with us for a while, my contention is that we should not negate them but on the contrary seek to find ways to make them more designiny to inhabit and find ways to make them as green as possible. I started work in this field in —it was the topic of my PhD dissertation at Cambridge. To ask other readers questions about Designing with Natureplease sign up. The sky terraces harness cooling breezes and the roof gardens and landscaping lower the ambient temperature surrounding the building, a yean that contributes to the National Library having an environmental impact that is lower than that of similar sized office buildings.

There will never be a standard “one size fits all” solution.

In his own jen he states ; We would be mistaken to see green design as simply about eco-engineering.

Table of contents The ecological imperative; ecology and design; architecture and ecological impact; a framework for ecological design; external ecological interdependencies of the built environment; internal ecological interdependencies of the built environment; external-to-internal ecological interdependencies; internal-to-external ecological interdependencies of the built environment; impact on design methodology. Naturs Mtz rated it really liked it Oct 27, It also explains the real, pragmatic steps that can be taken to mitigate the all-too-common damage that man-made structures inflict on the natural environment, including low-energy design, natre design, recycling and disposal of building materials and waste and ecological landuse planning.
It may be because public adoption of new ideas first require champions by important figures like politicians and leaders in the profession and industry. Presenting a compelling case for ecological design, it provides architects and designers with a full understanding of the impact that their built works have on the natural environment, as well as what can be done to mitigate the damage to a building site and its natural resources.
Other passive and energy efficient measures include the orientation of the building, appropriate building colour, an open plaza between the two blocks to allow for natural ventilation, and motion sensors for lighting and rain detection to moderate energy and water use. This timely and incisive book offers the first truly comprehensive framework for designing buildings that work with nature.

For Yeang, buildings need to be simple, flexible, able to be assembled and disassembled recyclableand integrate seamlesslesly with the natural environment — the building should always be influenced by the site specifics of ecology, physical landscape and climate.
