Planning and Design Strategies for Sustainability and Profit: Pragmatic sustainable design on building and urban scales

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This practical guide demonstrates the benefits of sustainable design by emphasising its development as an economically viable and profitable option.

This title identifies the current problems which demand that a new holistic approach to sustainability be taken on. It details the issues, and provides a range of potential solutions and techniques that can be applied by the architect and urban designer at both the building, and urban scale. It goes on to provide examples of good practice and guidelines for future development - essential information that shows how sustainability has been developed to provide tangible benefits, not only to the environment, but also to users and designers.

*Learn to profit from sustainable design with this practical guide
*Discover how to apply the theory to all projects, from urban to building scale
*International case studies from Europe, North America, Australia and Hong
Kong make the topic universally relevant
