This illustrated volume, which is part of the "Houses and homes" series, examines how changing building techniques and high technology can make our homes more comfortable and efficient places to live in, with a look at how climate and location influence the materials and structures.;The book discusses how the growing population in cities will affect housing in the future and shows how modern materials and techniques are taking the place of traditional methods. The author looks at how homes can become more efficient, by considering alternative methods of producing energy for them and how we can help conserve this energy. The possibility of increased automation and the role of the microcomputer are considered, as well as communication systems through television and telephone services used in conjunction with home computers.;The text is complemented by a glossary, a further reading list and an index.;Mark Lambert has written several other books for Wayland including "Living in the Future", "Future Sources of Energy", "Transport in the Future" and "The Future for the Environment".
