Energy People Place offers an integrated, holistic framework for sustainable development, extending the now familiar professional focus on energy and waste to include attention to efficient land use and quality of life. Using the paradigm-shifting mixed use Kings Place development in London's King's Cross regeneration area as a case-study, the book describes its fulfilment of new sustainable potentials highlighting the positive effects of diverse uses and functions, architectural programme, intensity of use, contextual response, spatial quality, design integration, estate management, and curatorship to foster social capital. Covering the project life cycle from initial vision, brief development and team selection, through physical and social realisation, to programming and management of the completed space, the extensive images bring to life the array of vibrant activities in the building's commercial workspace, performing and visual arts, third place and leisure settings. The analysis blows away long held scepticism in the scope to integrate different functions and user constituencies at the scale of a single building, identifying critical factors that enhance the sustainable potential that can be achieved by a more granular mix of uses. The book concludes with a manifesto for sustainable urban development that readers and project teams can use as a roadmap, starting with visions and value, and working through the specifics of site and building, to focus on outcomes - a far more productive evaluative lens than the all too typically exclusive consideration of financial outturn alone. This is important reading for developers, architects, engineers, planners, urban designers, city managers and building occupiers - indeed, all those with an interest in shaping a more worthwhile, sustainable built environment. Hardback in good condition but has bumping to top right and a scuff to bottom right of front cover.
