Torrent description

Architecture and the Urban Environment    A Vision for the New Age preview 0

Author : Derek Thomas | Published by Architectural Press | Publication date : June 2002 | ISBN : 0750654627 | PDF Format, 223 pages | English

This well illustrated text forms a critical appraisal of the place and direction of architecture and urban design in a new world order at the start of the 21st century. The book defines architectural and environmental goals for the New Age by analysing recent contemporary work for its responsiveness to important social and environmental issues and comparing it to successful precedents in architecture. It argues that this new sustainable approach to architecture should be recognised as a new development of mainstream architectural history.
This practical guide illustrates current social and natural resource issues to aid architects in their approach to future design.

Environmental economics is presented as a potential bridge over the divide between the expectations of the business sector and the concerns of environmental lobbies. Through examples and case studies, an accessible analysis of carefully researched data, drawn from primary sources over four continents, allows the author to outline the current urgency for architects and urban designers to respond with real commitment to current and future changing contexts.

This book expresses a holistic vision and proposes a value system in response to the diagnosis. It includes: sound architectural and environmental ethics; end user involvement in the design process and technological advances aimed at sustainable resource use.
Includes international case studies from Europe, North America, the Developing world including South Africa, South America and Central Asia.

Some of the highlighted features of this book :
• Contains 240 images of the world's most important buildings that have had an impact on architectural and urban design in the last decade.
• Discover the evolution of design through best practice across four continents in this accessible narrative.
• Explore shifting social, environmental, technological, economic and political issues and their relation to the role of architects, designers and developers in the new millennium.
