Book News Annotation:

Miller (architecture, U. of Washington) gives plenty of examples of sustainable engineering and architecture practice, but he also allows for the spirit of the Northwest, informed by the trees, rain, rugged landscape, and sense of pioneering, to come through in his choices. Miller describes the conditions of regionalism in architecture, gives a brief history of sustainable design in the Northwest and its environmental strategies of earth, wind, water and fire, and gives examples of site-building through ecological planning, light construction resources in conserving building, climate-controlled enclosures, and uses of integrated technology and materials. He also gives project information for the examples and a glossary of terms that may be new to other regions.
