Bringing together theory and practice this important text provides a coherent overview of the important issues in sustainable urban design. The contributors, recognised experts from both architectural and planning practices, focus on the physical aspects of the urban environment - the buildings and their engineering systems, landscaping, transport systems, energy, water and waste systems. Illustrated with state of the art case studies, the writers successfully cover all the key elements in one volume, providing substantiated examples of best practice.
