Sustainability is without a doubt the future of architecture. Driven by neces¬sity, as well as by a progressive and daring spirit, many architects are bran¬ching out in uncharted directions, designing efficient, autonomous energy systems or taking advantage of the properties in high-tech materials such as steel and glass for conserving energy. This volume is a careful selection of new projects by emerging architects which provide an interesting pano¬rama of languages and techniques applied to the rich and dynamic field of sustainable architecture. This is an invaluable and up-to-date resource on current sustainable design.
