Description

Following the success of its enormously popular predecessor (101 Rules of Thumb for Low Energy Architecture) the next title in this pithy series now focuses our attention on the bigger picture in sustainability: the overarching design of our buildings and cities.

With ever-increasing pressure on the planet’s ecosystems, resulting from population growth, urbanisation and climate change, people across the world are becoming more aware of the need for the cities they live and work in to be sustainable. Yet the issue of how to be sustainable – and what sustainability actually meanscan seem a confusing and complex one.

Fortunately, here is a book to shed light on this complex area. Providing both definition and guidance, these 101 rules illustrate an approach to sustainability that relates to the processes which are commonly adopted for the design, construction and operation of buildings and cities. Universally applicable no matter where you are in the world, the rules serve as an ideal starting point for students as well as an aide-memoire for more experienced readers and practitioners.

  • Distils a complex and often confusing field into simple, practical principles
  • Contains almost no complex science or maths
  • Global appeal; all principles are universal
  • Simple, attractive illustrations appeal to architects/designers
  • Draws on and summarises many sources (texts, research papers) – outlined in the narrative bibliography, so that readers can look deeper and read further into the subject if they choose. Also gives scientific grounding to the rules.

Available as an eBook from our eBookshop.
