This book started life as a successor to Sustainable Architecture, published in 2007, which set out to prove that sustainable architecture can indeed both `lift the spirit' as well as save the planet. This fully revised edition seeks to take a step further, exploring how sustainable buildings are occupied and work, and sheds light on the methods used to observe this. Through short essays from thought-leaders and case studies of visually stunning, environmentally ground-breaking projects, Better Buildings provides architects with the inspiration and tools they need to deliver sustainable design.
