Description

With the growing demand for greener products and rising concern for mankinds damaging environmental footprint, design professionals face pressure to design buildings that not only value form and function, but also favor techniques that heighten energy-efficiency and lower environmental damage. Building Green showcases the best of modern green design from all over the world. For example, the Bridge House in Australia (Max Pritchard Architect) is minimalist both visually and environmentally: the narrow house form blends into the trees and is naturally air-conditioned using solar energy and cross ventilation, and was built using local sustainable materials. With photographs and floor plans for projects ranging from single-family homes and community centers to hotels and Olympic-sized stadiums, Building Green proves that spectacular design need not sacrifice environmental consciousness.
