Tradition and Sustainability

£20.00

Product description

Tradition and Sustainability. The Prince's Foundation For The Built Environment. Tradition and Sustainability examines one of the most important challenges that faces the developed world: how to build green cities. It gives the reader an insight into current thinking on the subject that will both enlighten the layperson and provide an important, scholarly appreciation for the university market of courses in Urbanism, Planning, and Architecture - over 250,000 of them in the U.S. and U.K. alone. The importance of the subject is exemplified by the standard of contributor to this book and by the authors of the foreword, HRH the Prince of Wales. Its main tenets are that as our cities grow, we must learn from nature and from traditional building methods; we must use sustainable materials; but above all we must provide a global answer and not an elitist one.
The book is written by a variety of experts on the subject including Dr Tim Yates - Director of Stone & Heritage, Building Research Establishment (BRE), Watford, UK - who has more than 30 years of involvement in the built heritage and Dr. Victor Deupi - Ph.D., Arthur Ross Director of Education at the Institute of Classical Architecture & Classical America, New York - who over the past fifteen years has been committed to the advancement of contemporary classicism through both education and practice.
Very good condition hardback cover, no pages missing and all intact, only dust sleeve scuffed a bit.
