Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A remarkable collection of vibrant and diverse readings, Sustainable Architecture White Papers explores the critical link between our built and natural environments. Cuting-edge architecture, design, planning, and education leaders illustrate a new architectural strategy. Sustainable architecture teaches us that when creative processes are used in conjunction with social, cultural, and environmental systems, architecture can meet the aesthetic and practical requirements of today without compromising the needs of future generations.

Review:

"Enlightening snapshots of the current thinking and practice that is leading us to an environmentally aware architecture that is emotionally, physically, and socially satisfying." Susan S. Szenasy, Editor in Chief, Metropolis Magazine

Review:

"An intelligent compendium of writings on architecture and the environment delivered by a stellar group of individuals who offer insight and inspiration." George M. Beylerian, Founder & President, Material Connexion

Review:

"Finding the mean and forms of sustainability is the greatist challenge faced by architecture and urbanism. This volume will be of great aid in meeting it." Michael Sorkin, Principal, Michael Sorkin Studio

Review:

"A strong foundation for an architecture where justice and equity, beauty and resposibility come together." Stephen Viederman, Former President, Jessie Smith Noyed Foundation
