Description

Energy People Place offers an integrated, holistic framework for sustainable development, extending the now familiar focus on energy and waste to include attention to both land use and quality of life, pivotal to more rounded outcomes.  Extensively illustrated by reference to the paradigm-shifting mixed use Kings Place development in London's King's Cross regeneration area, the book describes its achievement of new sustainable potentials, highlighting the positive effects of diverse uses and functions, architectural programme, intensity of use, contextual integration, design quality, estate management, and curatorship to promote social capital.

This book is important reading for developers, architects, engineers, planners, urban designers, city managers and building occupiers - indeed, all those with an interest in shaping a more worthwhile, sustainable built environment.
