Ecological Architecture charts the ascendancy of an ecological approach to building over the past century, assessing as it does so the situation as it stands today, and identifying where we might go next. As a decisive step in the rewriting of the history of modern architecture, this book will be essential reading for practitioners and students of architecture: as an urgent wake-up call concerning the state of our built environment, it will be of interest to everyone with a stake in the future of our planet.
