9783836535892: Green Architecture Now! Vol. 2

Sustainability gone chic. Building a better future for our planet. Green architecture used to be on the fringes, but it has gone mainstream and this new volume shows, how, why, and where. This is not a technical handbook, but rather a guided tour from one end of the globe to another where sustainability has not only gone chic, but has become indispensible. Solar panels and double glazing to the rescue - the energy bill is going down! As always in the "Architecture Now" books, you can discover the latest realizations of "stars" like Peter Zumthor and Bernard Tschumi, but also catch up on the rising new generation of architects, from Korea to Vietnam, from Los Angeles to Berlin. "Green Architecture Now! 2" is the only place where a tunnel of flower pots by Olafur Eliasson and a Waste to Energy plant with a ski slope on top by BIG come together with a bang. This is no ordinary architecture book - it is an up-to-the-minute, irreverent survey of something we all care about: how to save the planet and build a greener future. Forget about categories and certainties, find out how sustainability can be fun!

Book Description TASCHEN, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: NEUF. Si l'architecture verte était marginale, elle est devenue tendance et ce nouveau livre vous montre où, comment et pourquoi. Il ne s'agit pas d'un manuel technique mais plutôt d'une visite guidée d'un bout à l'autre de la planète où le développement durable est devenu chic, mais surtout indispensable. Avec panneaux solaires et double-vitrage à la rescousse, la facture d'énergie diminue! Comme toujours avec les livres de la série Architecture Now! vous découvrirez les toutes dernières réalisations de "vedettes" comme Peter Zumthor et Bernard Tschumi et vous pourrez vous mettre à la page en suivant la nouvelle génération, de la Corée au Vietnam, de Los Angeles à Berlin. Seul Green Architecture Now! 2 vous offre des rencontres qui font des étincelles, comme celle du tunnel de pots de fleur d'Olafur Eliasson ou de l'usine de valorisation énergétique de déchets coiffée d'une piste de ski, signée BIG. Ceci n'est pas un livre d'architecture ordinaire, mais un panorama actuel irrévérencieux d'une réalité qui nous concerne tous: comment sauver la planète et construire un avenir plus vert. Oubliez catégories et certitudes, découvrez l'aspect ludique du durable! - Nombre de page(s) : 416 - Poids : 1620g - Genre : Universitaire, ouvrages de références, Essais, Livres en langue étrangère MIDI.

Book Description Taschen Deutschland Gmbh+ Okt 2012, 2012. Taschenbuch. Book Condition: Neu. 254x200x35 mm. Neuware - Nachhaltig attraktiv Nie sah Bauen mit gutem Gewissen besser aus Grüne Architektur, lange ein Nischenthema, ist im Mainstream angekommen. Dieser Band zeigt, warum es einfach so kommen musste. Er ist kein technisches Handbuch, sondern ein Reiseführer quer über unseren Planeten, auf dem Nachhaltigkeit nicht nur schick geworden ist, sondern unverzichtbar. Aus lebensphilosophisch-ethischen Gründen, natürlich. Aber auch, weil nichts die Stromrechnung schneller schrumpfen lässt als Solarzellen und Doppelverglasung. Wie in jedem Architecture-Now-Band findet man hier die neuesten Entwürfe von Stars wie Peter Zumthor oder Bernard Tschumi, lernt gleichzeitig aber auch die nächste Architektengeneration kennen von Korea bis Kalifornien, von Vietnam bis Berlin. Nur in Green Architecture Now! 2 treffen sie aufeinander: ein Tunnel aus Blumentöpfen des Künstlers Olafur Eliasson und eine vom Büro BIG entworfene Müllverbrennungsanlage mit Skipiste auf dem Dach. Weil dies kein gewöhnliches Architekturbuch ist, sondern ein topaktueller, unkonventioneller Rundumschlag zu einer Frage, die uns alle angeht: Wie können wir den Planeten retten, wie eine grüne Zukunft bauen Vergessen wir also die Bio -Schublade. Finden wir lieber heraus, wie gut Nachhaltigkeit und Ästhetik sich im Jahr 2012 vertragen. 416 pp. Englisch, Französisch, Deutsch. Bookseller Inventory # 9783836535892
