The authors of this collection of essays, all experts in their fields, discuss green design across a wide spectrum, from theoretical concepts to technical proposals and their implementation. "Green Design: From Theory to Practice" includes chapters on the use of solar energy systems, on passive mode (bioclimatic) design, designing for disassembly, computational performance simulations, ecology and biodiversity and green materials. Together, they provide a broad framework of the key aspects to be considered when designing sustainably. The book is a compilation of the presentations from the 7th Jerusalem Seminar in Architecture and supplementary essays.
For many, green design is simply achieving accreditation ratings (LEED, BREEAM, GreenStar or Green Mark), reducing a building's carbon footprint or incorporating a few clean technologies. While these are important first steps in the right direction, green design is much more -it demands the sort of comprehensive bio-integrative approach described in this book.
