New Directions in Sustainable Architecture
There was a time not that long ago when the internet was spelled with a capital "I". Today the internet is so ubiquitous the underlying assumption in any conversation is that everyone has access. Now it's the environment's turn at ubiquity and hopefully soon the assumption will be all design and architecture is green (environmentally correct) to start with. And the day it happens, there will just be good design and bad design. Until then we will read books like The Green House, where there are 35 MoCo design, environmentally correct, homes by architects such as Santiago Calatrava, Shigeru Ban, Miller/Hull, Rick Joy, Lake Flato, Kengo Kuma, Glenn Murcutt, Pugh & Scarpa, and Werner Sobek. The book is well illustrated, it's co-authored by the Executive Editor of ID Magazine, and features not only photos but plans and drawings as well. Hardcover, 196 pages, 300 images, $29.70 at Amazon.
