Editorial Reviews


"As a German architect practicing green building in the U.S., I am always eager to share the success stories and techniques of green building in Europe with my American colleagues. In this book, Jerry describes European policies, projects and technologies with such diligence and technical depth that I found plenty to learn myself about the most recent trends and new success stories from home."
(Anja Seehrich-Caldwell LEED AP, principal, ecoipso LLC)

"The United States, somewhat behind some of its European partners in terms of green building, is lucky to have Jerry Yudelson, one of the most brilliant minds in issues of sustainability, as its unofficial ambassador. He draws insightful connections between the old and new worlds to communicate how the built environment can be designed in ways less damaging to our planet."
(Ulf Meyer architect and writer, Berlin, Germany)

"In his latest book, Jerry Yudelson provides important insights into questions U.S. green designers have been asking for a while. His approachable style makes this an enjoyable read while also presenting valuable information for those seeking to achieve the urgently-needed transformation of the built environment on both sides of 'the pond.'"
(Mary Ann Lazarus AIA, LEED AP, senior vice president and firmwide director of sustainable design)

"Jerry Yudelson has delivered another highly readable and useful text, one that will keep architects, engineers, contractors, building owners, and real estate developers in North America informed about what they can learn from Europe's top sustainable design experts."
(Rob Cassidy editor-in-chief, Building Design+Construction)
