Sustainable Homes

Серия: "-"

Necessity is the mother of invention, and the global necessity of facing the challenges of Climate Change has unleashed the inventive powers of architects around the world, many of whom are tackling the problem in original and highly creative ways. And yet, as the projects contained in this volume attest, sustainable design doesn't necessarily preclude style and comfort, or even a little bit of luxury. With lush full-colour photography, detailed floor and site plans, and informative descriptions of each house's sustainable design elements, Sustainable Homes takes the reader on a round-the-world journey, traversing a range of climates, to see how today's architects are making the most of traditional and modern design principles and technologies to create more energy efficient houses. From the Light House in the UK, that country's first carbon-zero house, to the Palmyra House in India, a model in using local sustainable materials, to the sculptural works of art formed from the ecological-friendly technique of whole tree architecture, the houses in Sustainable Homes will captivate you with their beauty and invention, and inspire you with their ideas.
