About this book

As a direct consequence of increasing concerns around environmental sustainability, and with a focus on reducing the carbon footprint of any building, architects are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to build responsibly, yet imaginatively. Innovation and Application of Green Building Materials is a comprehensive guide to creating sustainable buildings, using a range of resources that have a unique identity, a unique imprint that finds a connection with the natural environment. Using materials sourced from around the globe including local stabilised earth brick from West African, bamboo from Southeast Asia, this is a diverse collection of houses built from wood, stone and glass; reflecting local culture and its ecology, informed by a new sustainable design philosophy.
