Sustainable Design Philosophy

The Philosophy of Sustainable Design outlines the most important issues and ideas emerging in the movement toward sustainable architecture and design, over the last thirty years.

This is a starting point for those involved in the building industry and looking for a more responsible method of building. This is the practical how-to knowledge that makes sense to professionals.

Asking how you can affect your own work through understanding the philosophy of sustainable design is the key to what gives this book all its power, laying the ethical questions and groundwork for a more down to earth technical study later on.
