Regenerative Design Techniques: Practical Applications in Landscape Design
A hands-on resource for applying regenerative design technologies
Regenerative Design Techniques provides practical and applied information on sustainable and regenerative principles, as well as techniques for analyzing and implementing these principles into the design of a structure or site. Written in a clear and accessible style, this book enables readers to easily and immediately apply all the material presented.
Environmental concerns that affect design are covered, along with issues such as water and waste, as well as information on energy and shelter. Specific topics examined within these broad issues include:
* Water quality, harvesting, runoff, and gray water
* Solid waste, recycling, reuse, and treatment
* Heat transfer, solar energy, and sun control
* Foundations, greenhouses, and indoor air quality
* Shelter design using overhangs and passive heating
* And many more
Complete with a companion Web site (www.wiley.com/go/melby) providing supplemental images, text, calculations, and additional resources, Regenerative Design Techniques is an invaluable resource to landscape architects, architects, environmental engineers, planners, and civil engineers, as well as students in these disciplines.
