About this book

In relation to architecture, the terms Environment, Ecology and Sustainability remain loosely defined. Over the past two years the EES Research Cluster at the AA has critically reassessed their meaning, in an attempt to open up a discussion around a new paradigm of environmental design - one that moves beyond the obvious issue of carbon conservation and seeks out new material and organisational tectonics and new forms of collaboration between architects, engineers and scientists.

The results of this research are gathered in this publication, along with a selection of award-winning projects from the first two cycles of the 'Environmental Tectonics' competition organised by the EES cluster.
