The first comprehensive guide to the state-of-the-art in green design.

This one-of-a-kind collection of "green" writings--from seminal figures such as Paolo Soleri and Buckminster Fuller, to unsung pioneers of alternative materials and experimental methods, to experts around the world--makes possible for the first time a grand overview of ecological design in architecture and planning.

It's also an unparalleled source of much-needed inspiration, job-simplifying details, and how-to's for the real-world structures and plans that are an everyday part of your work.

Covers everything from alternative energy source hardware to

  • design
  • aesthetics
  • permaculture
  • energy-saving retrofitting
  • interior air quality
  • hybrid construction
  • materials
  • co-housing
  • bioremediation
