About this book

Green Design: From Theory to Practice is a unique discussion of the issues surrounding sustainability, environmental responsibility and the use of natural resources becoming unavoidable. Green Design: From Theory to Practice looks at what Green Design actually entails and how this can be implemented within today's architectural practice. This reader scrutinises the pressing questions that designers must confront today, looking at the need to comply to green accreditation systems, but also at the wider and often over-looked implications of building design.

Green Design: From Theory to Practice looks in-depth at the way we use buildings, distribution systems of energy, transportation, manufacturing and the food industries, and ultimately at the way we lead our lives, to evaluate and address the true meaning of Green Design and the real causes underpinning today's environmental crisis.

The contributors each bring their own thoughts and questions on how to improve sustainable design, how important it is and how it can be enforced. These discussions are given a contemporary relevance through the inclusion of the work of contemporary architects, artists, writers and commentators.
