Description

Environmentally responsible design has long been of interest and has become a priority in order to offset the effects of global warming and soaring energy costs. While many people are aware of green design, the concept of sustainable development is far more complex. Sustainable Design for Interior Environments is the comprehensive textbook on the subject and is intended for students and instructors as well as practicing designers, architects, contractors, and facility managers. Introductory chapters provide a thorough grounding in environmental concerns, including the ways in which resources are affected and depleted and the development and effects of legislation. These principles are then put into practice. Strategies for working with natural resources, managing air quality and contaminants, and using different materials are discussed everything from directing sunlight and determining acoustics to the choice of flooring and fabrics. Exercises incorporate hands-on activities to lead students through the design process. Thorough, transformative, and tough, Sustainable Design is the gold-standard text on one of today s most important issues in design.
