Publisher: nai010 Publishers ISBN: 9789056628628 Editor: Winy Maas Format: Softcover, 408pp, 150x210mm
The Why Factory at the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands dreams of the seemingly unattainable Green City. However, there remains confusion about what 'green' means for design, architecture and urbanism. Green is fashionable, but its design potentials remain unexplored.
This book questions what is currently labelled as 'green' and, in conjunction with various experts, elaborates upon how it ought to be defined. It challenges architectural conventions and looks into the wide range of possibilities for new green architecture.
