Description
Foreword 9 camera-ready green design ONE AFTERNOON SEVERAL MONTHS AGO, we found ourselves waiting in the quiet, impossibly picturesque Swiss town of Domat/Ems to meet an architect named Dietrich Schwarz. Though still in his th- ties, Schwarz has already earned a reputation as one of Switzerland’s leading practitioners of the environmentally friendly approach to architecture known as sustainable, or “green,” design. Using a c- bination of new, high-tech materials—some of his own invention— and old-fashioned architectural wisdom, he creates houses and other buildings that are snugly energy-ef?cient and sit lightly on the land. Introduction 10 Camera-Ready Green Design 11 Standards and Practices Introduction 12 A Very Short History Camera-Ready Green Design 13 A Movement’s Priorities Introduction 14 Camera-Ready Green Design 15 The Damage Done Introduction 16 Camera-Ready Green Design 17 city Cities have been around for more than six thousand years, drawing successive waves of new residents with their blend of commerce, culture, energy, and opportunity. The first city to surpass a population of one million was Baghdad, thirteen centuries ago. London topped ?ve million in 1825; New York exceeded ten million a hundred years later. The metropolitan area around Tokyo surpassed twenty million in 1965 and is now closing in on thirty.
