Front Cover
Overlook Press, 1998 - Architecture - 256 pages
A highly and colorfully illustrated international survey of contemporary architecture built according to bioclimatic, or green guidelines. Examines 50 buildings constructed in the past three years, explaining how they respond to the need to achieve harmony with their settings, conserve energy, and provide for the health and well-being of their occupants (after all, you can love the environment without necessarily wanting it in your bed). Also discusses the roots of the movement, its principles, its beginning in modern times, and future directions. The volume is 9.5" deep and 11.75" high. The price is $55.00 through the end of 1998. The CiP data shows the subtitle as Contemporary Green Buildings. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
