Foreword

This updated book is essential reading especially as it considers the 'why' as well as the 'what' of sustainable architecture. There is now wide agreement that halting global warming and its climatic consequences is likely to be the greatest challenge that we shall face in this century. As populations increase and, at the same time, gravitate to cities, buildings old and new should be a prime target in the battle to reverse the demand for fossil-based energy.

Students and practitioners alike within the construction industry need to be aware of the importance of their role in creating architecture which not only raises the quality of life but also ensures that such quality is sustainable.
