Description

Sustainability’s greatest obstacle is financial: noncompliance to sustainability standards is blamed on the supposedly higher costs and lower profits of construction. With rapid urbanisation, a slow economy and worsening climate crisis, the need for more sustainable practices and buildings is urgent. David Chipperfield, Michael Sorkin and Anne Lacaton are among more than 40 contributors offering essays, reports and case studies in this examination of the relationship between commercial and sustainable values, which evaluates architectural practices and models and introduces materials and methods to improve the environmental, social and economic performance of buildings.

Hardcover. Colour and black & white illustrations. English text.
