Media reviews
A book that is essential reading, especially as it considers the 'why' as well as the 'what' of sustainable architecture. Lord Rogers of Riverside "With ecological sustainability now on the curriculum for all the RIBA recognized courses in architecture this book could become essential reading for students. It would also be very attractive to practitioners who seek a useful, easily digestible, handbook to this field." Paul Hyett, RIBA President 'A book from an authority such as Peter Smith is welcome and deserves to be read for the amount of information packed into its 200 pages.' The Architectural Review 'This book is really two publications in one. It contains both a well-researched and dispassionate overview of energy and climate, combined with a thorough account of acheiving energy efficiency in buildings. It is also incredibly up to date...If budgets only extend to one book then this book is it.' Building Services Engineering Research and Technology Journal
