9780080890524: The Green Studio Handbook

Learn how to integrate green strategies into your building design. This practical handbook provides an essential introduction to green design strategies--helping you to understand how to save energy, water, and material resources.

It provides the information required to make judgments about which strategy to use and includes tools to enable you to incorporate the chosen strategy during the early stages of design.

Each of the forty-two selected environmental strategies includes a description of principle and concept, step-by-step procedures for integrating the strategy, annotated design tables and charts, key issues to be aware of when implementing the strategy, and references to further resources. Over 500 sketches and color photos illustrate concepts and applications.

In this second edition, 10 new case studies are included to show successful implementation of green strategies and assessments of building performance. Site analysis and glazing strategies have been added and new tables and updated drawings simplify the application of concepts, preliminary system sizing, and integration of strategies.

Using real building projects as a guide, designers will be able to make informed choices about the most competitive and effective way to design a green building.

The Green Studio Handbook is a reference guide and source of inspiration for students in design studios and architects in professional practice.

From a review of the first edition: "An excellent starting point for aspiring students. It is also a useful tool for the experienced architect looking to communicate key ideas and principles concisely."
