The emergent understanding of the building and the city as ecological systems immediately raises the question of their interaction. In which ways does a "green building" contribute to the ecology of its surroundings? And how can ecologically designed urban districts, with their green and blue networks, link up with the elements and technologies of building design? This title investigates these questions from a conceptual, planning, design and experiential point of view.
