Summary

Eco-friendly building in the world today The most exciting new buildings in the world are now almost all environmentally aware, sustainable, and conceived to consume far less energy than ever before. That architecture is one of the major sources of greenhouse gases in the world makes this new trend is all the more significant. This book brings together the best examples of green projects from the Architecture Nowseries together with numerous new, never-before-seen projects. Well-known architects like Frank Gehry and Norman Foster are present right alongside young, up-and-coming creators from Latin America, the United States, Europe, and Asia. This is not a technical book, nor are its contents limited to any pre-defined category. Being "green" means being aware of the responsibility implied in the construction and use of modern buildings, and there are many ways to express this rising consciousness. Some solutions, the ones generally called "passive," are as old as the history of architecture, while others are born of cutting-edge technologies. Both approaches and many more are included in this ground-breaking collection of 100 of the world's most exciting recent eco-friendly buildings.
