About this book

How can we transform and future-proof the post-industrial city through strategies of architectural and urban design? The answer is to use an energy-efficient, zero-carbon model based on renewable energy sources and renewable building typologies. This book presents different models for sustainable urban growth, based on the principles of 'Green Urbanism'.

Current and emergent forms of urbanism are influenced by climate change, leading to the idea of a new generation of 'zero-emission cities'. These cities are seen as applying new concepts in densification and expansion, designed with energy efficiency and sustainability as principal criteria. The aim of this type of 'Systems Thinking' is to connect and integrate sustainable design principles with a holistic idea for the future of our cities to generate future-proof strategies for the revitalization of the urban landscape.

Media reviews
'A critical overview of ecological urbanism concepts, offering a methodology for sustainable design.' Dr. Ken Yeang, architect, London/Kuala Lumpur 'Steffen Lehmann has a long interest in sustainable cities design and his book provides a critical overview of ecological urbanism concepts, offering a methodology for sustainable design.' Dr. Ken Yeang, architect, London/Kuala Lumpur 'When Newcastle gets around to changing itself into the city it might be, Steffen Lehmanni? s encyclopaedic text would make a forcible starting point... Lehmann fastidiously lays out the argument for compact, zero-carbon cities based on renewable energy sources, smart design of new structures and adaptive re-use of heritage buildings.'
