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!

Review:

"Green Architecture Now! Vol. 2 shows how sustainability has become chic and moved beyond the fringes. Whether you simply want to drool over the designs from as far afield as Korea or Vietnam, or want to get some eco inspiration of your very own, this is one coffee table book worth putting on a giant cafetiere for."
