This book explores the theories, practices, and
principles of new approaches to solar architecture
that foster both design excellence and low-energy use.
In response to the challenges of global warming and
climate change, design and technology enable architects
to achieve greater performance standards while at the
same time developing an environmental aesthetic.
Towards Zero-energy Architecture is a much-needed
call for the design professions to redefine architecture
to help solve ecological problems.
Mary Guzowski is an Associate Professor in the School of
Architecture at the University of Minnesota. She teaches and conducts
research related to daylighting, solar architecture, and ecological
design and her publications include the book Daylighting for
Sustainable Design. Recent research has focused on aesthetic and solar
architecture and ecological innovations in carbon-neutral design.
