Architecture and the Environment: Bioclimatic Building Design

Front Cover
Laurence King, 1998 - Architecture - 256 pages
Sustainable building has commonly been seen as separate from mainstream architecture and has been accorded the status of worthy but dull design. Adopting the term bioclimatic in preference to green to describe buildings which are inspired by nature and have a clear strategy for minimizing environmental depredation, this book seeks to revise this judgement.
