About this book

How green is your blueprint? Green Architecture Now! looks at architecture as sustainable technology. The ecological impact of new construction, once a secondary concern, has become a crucial issue. Badly designed buildings guzzle natural resources and pollute their surroundings; in an era of rocketing energy costs and environmental degradation, the need for a sustainable, energy-efficient architecture is paramount. Green Architecture Now! features the architects, artists and firms pioneering a new green architecture, and examines the emergent aesthetics.
