Quick Overview

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.
