Review "This book, produced in association with Arup, the largest firm of consulting engineers in the world, explores the close relationship between architecture and engineering." "Energy Efficient Buildings addresses the ways in which architects and engineers collaborate in the process of environmental control in buildings. From the beginning of the industrial revolution in the eighteenth century, they began to work together to achieve new standards of comfort within buildings and, as a consequence, to bring about a fundamental transformation in the nature of architecture. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, the debate on the vulnerability of the global environment has given a new significance to the environmental agenda in architecture."
Note "The authors' introduction traces the historical development of the environmental strand of architectural theory and practice, establishing the background for twenty critical studies of international contemporary buildings, each built in association with Arup. Connecting the environmental function of architecture to the wider historical and theoretical discourse, Energy Efficient Buildings will appeal to practitioners within the fields of architecture, environmental design, and engineering, as well as to those with an interest in these areas."--BOOK JACKET
