Fundamental reading for practising, studying or teaching architecture in 2019 - redefines our relationship not only with carbon but building materials at large. There should be multiple copies of this in every office and university!
Fascinating, well structured and paced, introduction to best practice and necessary practical knowledge to guide working with existing buildings - shall become evermore valuable as the need for retrofit surges in the future.
Thanks @ChrisMorganJGA for the recommendation.
We may be in a #ClimateEmergency but we must not lose sight on what is possible: this uplifting addition to anyone’s bookshelf compiles essays on comfort, happiness and satisfaction within the built environment, broken up by short photoessays on individuals’ Happy Places.
Captivating and inspired case study on @UniverCity_SFU and its ongoing effort to become a Living Community; blending infrastructural systems with natural ones whilst building an environmentally and socially sustainable community from the ground upwards - highly recommend
