Mainstream Green: Sustainable Design by LPA.
Images, Jan 1, 2005 - Architecture - 128 pages
As a firm, LPA has embraced sustainability to the extent that it has become an integral component of its culture. Sustainable design practiced at LPA is an integrated 'holistic' process that is treated no different than any other program element where the client's sustainable requirements, such as acheiving LEED certification, are balanced against the budget to find the right response for each solution. The 'green' buildings featured in this book are at the forefront of a considerable change in the culture of new building and development, and demonstrate that sustainable design does not have to be an added cost, but can provide significant added benefits.
