Item description for Engineering for a Finite Planet: Sustainable Solutions by Buro Happold by Peter Davey...
Our planet's resources are finite, and the engineer's work must take this fact into account. Buro Happold, the international firm of consulting engineers, has for more than 30 years shown a consistently high level of inventive and creative thought about the nature of structure and environmental control and how to use structure, systems and materials to maximum effect with minimum environmental impact. The practice has earned a reputation for expertise and excellence in this field. The book introduces the work of the firm, highlighting examples of seminal projects that demonstrate its approach to sustainable design. Realising design in an ecologically sensitive way and developing solutions from a long-term perspective is the common focus of these projects from around the world.
