Contents Notes
"The Green Skyscraper presents a general framework for looking at ecological design, followed by an examination of its fundamental premises and how these might be applied to the design of the contemporary large building. It includes an elucidation of those aspects of building that impinge on the environment, such as the use of energy and materials and their physical impacts on ecosystems. The book is illustrated by examples from Yeang's experiments, projects and research, and includes references to research work by others."--BOOK JACKET. "This treatise is a must for designers seeking a strategy for sustainable design, and for understanding the decisions that need to be made in the design process."--Jacket.
