About this book

Upon their arrival in New Zealand from the UK, the editors noted that the concept of sustainability and its application to the built environment had been relatively underdeveloped in New Zealand's academic environment. By bringing together eleven theoretic and pragmatic contributions from those who have been working on the issue, they hope to jump-start the debate in the island country. Concurrent theories are identified and described; issues of diversity and liveability in settlements are discussed; and a "synthesis" section attempts to meld both theoretic and practical concerns.
