5.0 out of 5 stars Accessible and innovative, October 23, 2011
This review is from: Urban Green: Architecture for the Future (Hardcover)
One of the hardest things to do is to take a complicated topic, and frame it in a way that is accessible while not reducing the topic's complexity. I believe Neil Chambers has done that in his book. As an architect, I know we as a profession are as guilty as any of making a topic overly complex. We want double curtain walls, when good insulation will do the trick. In the terms Chambers uses, architects tend to want technological answers instead of ecological answers to address the challenges sustainability presents.

It is the fact that Chambers walks the fine line between accessibility and innovation that this book is a rare find. For anyone interested in cities and sustainability this is a must read.

Now if I can only talk my wife into letting our lawn run wild. I won't miss cutting the grass for a second.
