Item description for Architecture of Change: Sustainability and Humanity in the Built Environment by Kristin Feireiss & Lukas Feireiss...

Today s architects and engineers are increasingly being asked to address issues
of sustainability in our changing world. Architecture of Change presents outstanding
architectural projects that combine creativity, scientific knowledge,
technical innovation, social engagement and a strong sense of responsibility
to address environmental challenges. The book is based on the Zumtobel Group
Award for Sustainability and Humanity in the Built Environment.
Architecture of Change features recently built and realised projects that in
addition to their exceptional architectural quality make a notable contribution
to a liveable and sustainable future. But the book also covers current initiatives
that promote innovative research in this sector and thus encourage an emerging
generation of environmentally aware architects and urban planners.
Architecture of Change contains over forty international projects by architects
that include Pritzker Prize winner Thom Mayne, Steven Holl, Kenneth Yang,
Sauerbruch & Hutton, Architecture for Humanity and Rural Studio. The included
work ranges from development projects in Bangladesh, Nepal and Africa to open
source Internet platforms, experimental approaches to flood prevention and
modern high-rises for an urban context. The book also includes essays by and
interviews with internationally renowned experts in architecture, science, economics
and politics.
Its impressive examples of pioneering architectural projects make Architecture
of Change an inspiring book for all those interested in contemporary architecture
and questions of sustainability. Because it shows visionary solutions that are
improving our environment in real ways, the publication is a relevant reference
for both a professional and general audience.
