Ecological Urban Architecture: Qualitative Approaches to Sustainability

Basel: Birkhäuser, 2012

Focusing on qualitative aspects of the ecological, the book identifies fields in which architectural and urban designers can use their creative skills and methods to achieve sustainable results on the urban scale. Ecological Urban Architecture provides in-depth information on the complexity of ecological design in urban environments in response to four themes for creating qualitative outcomes: Materialise, Mobilise, Simulate, Transform.
