Design Ecologies

Architects are under increasing pressure to design buildings that are sustainable. With all of the focus on green building, there has been little discussion about the connections between artictectural design, ecology, and environmentalism. This book tries to make these connections, linking what people do with the biological world in which we live. It demonstrates that design strategies, whether intuitive or technological, may be based in social, material, or ecological ideals.

This book can be found in HECSA Library:
