About this book

Each architectural project presented in Eco-Architecture reflects challenges confronting the architect and the solutions they find to create thoughtful, sustainable designs and methods of construction using socially responsible, environmentally-friendly practices. Throughout this superbly illustrated book, we discover the principles of eco architecture; smart design, use of eco-materials, energy efficiency, water conservation and a healthy, sound natural environment, both in residential living spaces and in largerscale, industrial environments. Featuring an extensive collection of full-colour photographs, we see the outstanding works of internationally-renowned and emerging architects and designers who have achieved practical, innovative and stylish solutions within the framework of modern eco-architecture. Included here are the latest innovations, including solar panelling, wind energy systems, environmentallyfriendly heating and cooling solutions and thermal glazing. Exploring the ideas of each of the 100 protagonists featured, Eco-Architecture is lavishly illustrated with photos, plans and original drawings, focusing on various geographical areas of particular interest. This remarkable book looks towards a future where design can be at once sophisticated, innovative, constructive, eco-friendly and functional.
