I am a community planner working in sustainable design. I have a library of books that pitch the green, the innovative , mod construction, etc.
Most of them are, at the end of the day, fluff... many promoting a small group of architects that get together to publish a sort of self serving tome.
THIS BOOK IS THE EXCEPTION! It is sure to become the standard as a resource for inspired design world wide, and the way it is constructed is brilliant, with the design and the technical well illustrated, along with an engaging background story of how the project came about, what were the challenges, etc.
I am purchasing copies of this book for associates so they can get the benefit of this remarkable overview of creative, sustainable, and innovative work being done world-wide by designers, tinkers , inventors, and creative folks that really do Give a Damn
I hope they issue a new edition every couple of years.
Seriously, its like the original Whole Earth in the important and liberating information contained... an important new resource
Buy this Book.
