The sustainability movement in architecture is gaining tremendous momentum every year, especially now that buildings can be rated with LEED and their operations tracked for effectiveness.

Using more than 200 beautiful photos and illustrations, this timely architectural guide presents design data and specifications from a wide variety of projects, including schools, offices, labs, libraries, multifamily housing, and government buildings.

For each of the cutting-edge projects included, Emerald Architecture provides a lucid description of the building itself…how it works…and an evaluation of how successful it has been.

Written by the experts at GreenSource Magazine, this invaluable design tool features the following information for each of the 24 case studies of successful sustainable structures and facilities:

  • Comprehensive architectural details, elevations, and floor and site plans
  • Numerous full-color photos and illustrations of the project
  • Carbon footprint and energy use
  • Accurate product sources and credits to aid in research and planning
  • Key parameters, such as location, square footage, and cost
  • Handy charts for tracking climate and rainfall to understand energy use
  • LEED scores and ratings

In addition, this all-in-one green resource contains a comprehensive introduction to concepts of sustainable design…time- and money-saving material on new building technology…the international aspects of sustainable design and construction…innovative new green products…and many forward-looking design ideas and techniques that are currently being used to enhance the beauty, viability, and management of sustainable structures and facilities.

An essential, skills-building reference, Emerald Architecture presents a state-of-the-art compendium of “hard” information on the planning, design, and methods for green structures and facilities.
