Urban Design: Green Dimensions
In Green Dimensions, Cliff Moughtin relates sustainable development and green design to the realm of urban design and development. Examining regional and local frameworks for design and planning, this book shows how sustainable urban design can be implemented on every scale.
Working from a strong theoretical base, the author uses case studies and discusses policy developments, in order to challenge the conventional wisdom on
sustainable design. The book provides a rounded discussion of the application and suitability of current practice, and predicts future design needs.
Updating the reader on topics such as energy efficiency, sustainable city forms and the culture of new urbanism, this completely revised and restructured second edition also includes brand new chapters on the Urban Park and Bio-diversity.
