Reseña del editor
You'll find clear instructions on how to design, build and use a green sustainable architecture in Ecodesign . Author Ken Yeang will show you how to produce and maintain ecosystem-like structures and systems whose content and outputs not only integrate benignly with the natural environment, but whose built form and systems function with sensitivity to the locality's ecology as well in relation to global biospheric processes. He will help you learn to develop structures and systems that are low consumers of non-renewable resources, built with materials that have low ecological consequences and are designed to facilitate disassembly, continuous reuse and recycling, and that at the end of their useful lives can be reintegrated seamlessly back into the natural environment. Each of these aspects, and other attendant ones, is examined in detail with regards to how they influence design and planning.Ver Descripción del producto

I liked this book because is complete and have important details about the ecodesign.
Concepts such as ecology, biological organisation, ecosystem development (processes, components) and all the interactions between the layers within the ecosystem are presented and explained in an objective way.
Ken Yeang's main goal with Ecodesign is to spread the overall perception of how our built environment and its influence on the natural scenario can become an integral and benign part of our life on the planet.
In those terms, a variety of instructions, illustations, diagrams, schemes and strategies for achieving such ecological approach to design are presented.
Do not expect to find all the answers for ecodesign on this manual. Expect, however, to find a theoretical framework that enables the designer to achieve an end product that recognizes and responds to a locality's ecosystem benignly and contributes to its biodiversity continuity.
The book's structure and organisation serves its premise of being a manual once the user can rearrange the reading sequence of the chapters as intended. It is a "must have" for all of those who seek to understand and apply green concepts into their practical work.
