Sustainable : Houses with Small Footprints, Hardback Book

Sustainable : Houses with Small Footprints Hardback


A presentation of contemporary houses that demonstrates how domesticity can be beautiful and still help the planet.

Have we passed a tipping point beyond which we can no longer reverse a course of action that was charted several decades ago Sustainable: Houses with Small Footprints argues that we can indeed detach our dwellings from a dependence on many external systems and resources and adopt other building practices.

What is known as living off the grid is possible, and Sustainable presents forty-five houses that demonstrate how architects have implemented sustainable design concepts around the world.

These projects show us what time-tested vernacular design principles-including local materials, natural ventilation strategies, and earth shelter construction-can teach us, as well as how the latest cutting-edge technologies-such as indoor farming and living walls made of plant material-can make truly sustainable design possible.

The variety and ingenuity of the projects featured here make Sustainable a uniquely coherent and authoritative volume on sustainable residential design.
