Description: Environmentally Conscious Design has become a major interest of architects, designers, planners, public officials, and industry leaders around the world. Unlike other books on the subject that focus on only one or another aspect of ecological design, 'The Ecology of Architecture' answers the question, How do we design and build ecologically sound and affordable structures today that will perform well tomorrow? Written by an experienced practitioner in the field, the book details all facets of green building by providing comparative energy performance solutions, recycling alternatives, cost considerations, materials analyses, information on legislation, as well as examples of practical applications.

Review(s): "Zeiher explains how to design and build ecologically sound and affordable structures, detailing all facets of green building by providing comparative energy performance solutions, recycling alternatives, cost considerations, materials analyses, and information on legislation, as well as examples of practical applications. Residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional buildings are represented, with ample b&w and color photographs and drawings." - Booknews
