"The book focuses on different themes including what a sustainable future in buildings is all about, a look at the issues behind the choices we make, contested ideas about material impacts and the fast-approaching horizon of new materials. See how some leaders in the field have approached the process of selecting appropriate materials and what amazing houses they hane created.
