Synopsis: Where the grass really is greener: Eco-friendly building in the world today   The most exciting new buildings in the world are now almost all environmentally aware, sustainable, and conceived to consume far less energy than ever before. That architecture is one of the major sources of greenhouse gases in the world makes this new trend all the more significant. This book brings the best examples of green projects from the Architecture Now! series together with numerous new, never-seen-before projects. Well-known architects like Frank Gehry and Norman Foster are present right alongside young, up-and-coming creators from Latin America, the United States, Europe, and Asia. This is not a technical book, nor are its contents limited to any predefined category. Being ?green? means being aware of the responsibility implied in the construction and use of modern buildings, and there are many ways to express this rising consciousness. Some solutions, the ones generally called ?passive,? are as old as the history of architecture, while others are born of cutting-edge technologies. Both approaches and many more are included in this groundbreaking collection of 100 of the world?s most innovative and recent eco-friendly buildings.   Text in English, French, and German

Book Description TASCHEN, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: NEUF. Les nouvelles constructions les plus fascinantes au monde sont désormais presque toutes soucieuses de l'environnement, durables et conçues pour consommer beaucoup moins d'énergie qu'auparavant. Le fait que l'architecture représente une des sources principales d'émissions de gaz à effet de serre accentue l'importance de cette nouvelle tendance. Cet ouvrage rassemble les meilleurs exemples de projets verts tirés de la collection Architecture Now!, ainsi que de nombreux projets inédits. Vous y trouverez les réalisations d'architectes de renom, comme Frank Gehry et Norman Foster, ainsi que celles de valeurs montantes venues d'Amérique Latine, des États-Unis, d'Europe et d'Asie. Il ne s'agit pas d'un livre technique et son contenu ne se restreint pas à des catégories prédéterminées. Être "vert", c'est être conscient de la responsabilité inhérente à la construction et à l'exploitation de bâtiments modernes, prise de conscience qui peut se manifester sous bien des formes. Certaines solutions, généralement considérées comme "passives", sont aussi vieilles que l'histoire de l'architecture, alors que d'autres sont nées de technologies de pointe. Les deux approches, et bien d'autres encore, sont illustrées dans ce recueil révolutionnaire des 100 bâtiments récents les plus intéressants parmi les créations les plus respectueuses de l'environnement. - Nombre de page(s) : 696 - Poids : 5356g - Genre : Universitaire, ouvrages de références, Essais, Livres en langue étrangère.

Book Description Die spannendsten neuen Bauten weltweit sind heutzutage fast alle den Werten Umweltbewusstsein, Nachhaltigkeit und Energieeffizienz verpflichtet. Die Erkenntnis, dass Architektur einer der Hauptverursacher des Treibhauseffekts ist, macht diesen neuen Trend besonders relevant. Dieses Buch versammelt die besten Beispiele ökologischen Bauens aus der Reihe »Architecture Now!« und stellt darüber hinaus viele neue Projekte vor - von etablierten Architekturstars wie Frank Gehry und Norman Foster bis zu viel versprechenden Newcomern aus aller Welt. Dies ist kein technisches Buch in dem Sinne, dass bei der Auswahl der vorgestellten. Bauwerke einschränkende formale Maßstäbe angelegt worden wären: »Grün« zu bauen heißt, sich seiner Verantwortung zu stellen und mit den Auswirkungen auseinanderzusetzen, die die Errichtung und Inbetriebnahme moderner Gebäude mit sich bringen. Die Lösungen sind vielfältig: Einige so genannte passive Ansätze sind so alt wie die Geschichte der Architektur selbst, andere basieren auf allerneuesten Technologien. Die 100 in dieser einzigartigen Sammlung vorgestellten Gebäude vertreten das ganze Spektrum zeitgenössischer ökologischer Baukunst und gehören zu den derzeit aufregendsten Architekturprojekten der Welt. Ein Referenzwerk zum »Grünen Bauen«! 2 Bände 24 x 30,5 cm, 696 Seiten, durchg. Farbabb., geb. im Schmuckschuber. Bookseller Inventory # 602884
