About this book

Sustainable Preservation: Where Heritage Preservation and Environmental Conservation Overlap brings together ecological conservation theory and heritage preservation theory and shows how these two realms have common purpose. Through theoretical discussion and illustrative examples the book reframes the history of multiple movements within preservation and sustainable design strategy into cross-disciplinary themes. Through the topics: Human Relationships with Ecology and Biodiversity; Energy Use, Production, and Efficiency; Architecture and Building Design; Community Design and Planning; Landscapes and Regions; Law and Economic Policy; and Social and Cultural Behaviors the book explores contemporary ecological and heritage ethics as a strategy for improving the livability of the built environment.

The book provides a holistic critique of the challenges we face in light of climate and cultural changes occurring from the local to the global level. It synthesizes the best practices offered by separate disciplines as one cohesive way forward toward sustainable design. Sustainable Preservation considers strategies for increasing the physical and cultural longevity of the built environment, why these two are so closely paired, and the potential their overlap offers for sustained and meaningful inhabitation. Sustainable Preservation unites students and professionals in a wide range of disciplines with one common language and more closely aligned sets of objectives for preservation and sustainable design.
