About this book

There is increasing attention to the need to preserve and improve the global environment for current and future generations. This book summarizes new research done in this area based on a number of important collaborative projects in Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen, China. Sustainable Urban Housing in China features case studies and recommendations for new approaches to environmentally responsive sustainable building. It illuminates many principles of sustainability and energy efficiency applicable to buildings throughout the world, and in developing countries in particular. These projects identify practical new and existing technologies that will enable designs to provide energy-efficient, healthy, and comfortable conditions. Individual chapters treat aspects of sustainable design including ventilation, controls, materials, and daylighting; design guidelines and organizational methods used in urban projects are also discussed.

This book will be an important reference for architects, developers, planners, and engineers active in the emerging field of sustainable or green residential construction, and will serve as a useful guide for professionals and NGOs working on sustainable solutions for the rapid growth in the developing world.
