The comprehensively updated and expanded new edition of this
no-nonsense student and practice primer equips the contemporary
architect to deal with the profession's most important challenge:
designing buildings for sustainability. Brian Edwards' book pulls
together many of the disparate, complex strands of sustainability
into one simple reference source. It sets out the environmental,
professional and governmental context underlying sustainable
principles, as well as outlining the science, measures and design
solutions that designers need to adopt. The third edition includes
updated design advice on offices, schools, housing and urban
design, provides a useful history of green architecture education
and presents a guide to the international conventions and
agreements from the Rio Summit to Kyoto and the more recent UN
Climate Change conference held in Poznan in 2008. It also includes
new material prepared in anticipation of fresh international
agreements at the Copenhagen Conference on Global Warming held in
2009. Stunningly redesigned and extensively illustrated throughout,
"Rough Guide to Sustainability" will appeal to design and built
environment students and professionals, and anyone keen to cut
through to the avalanche of facts and myths about sustainability.
