Book Description

May 4 2009 0470126736 978-0470126738
"The world of residential building is poised to do great things. The guidance, information, materials and technology, while ever-evolving, are in place. Now it's the hearts and minds that must follow. Modern Sustainable Residential Design is a comprehensive, user-friendly guide that can help. So let's get started."
—From the Foreword by Allison Arieff, The New York Times "By Design" columnist

Books and articles celebrating sustainable or green residential design have become commonplace. This book is different. Written for design professionals, William Carpenter's Modern Sustainable Residential Design not only explores the fundamental design principles of sustainable homes, it provides a practical guide to implementing them.

This guide offers lessons for architects, interior designers, and builders who want to conceptualize and implement sustainable design strategies in modern residential design. It outlines solutions for incorporating sustainable aspects into a home design from conceptualization to implementation. Detailed design analyses range from groundbreaking contemporary buildings such as Pugh + Scarpa's Solar Umbrella House to Ray Kappe's LivingHome, illuminating some of the most innovative sustainable strategies in the United States and abroad.

Format:Hardcover
Horrible. The information is so generic it's almost worse than a 1st year University Textbook. Everything is common knowledge. There are at least 10 other books that offer better information than this one. If you are a student, this will not benefit your library to own it.
