The edited summary of twelve key presentations at an International Design Symposium held at MIT. This book presents an important collection of contributions from key designers with a track record in the field of environmentally conscious buildings. Their contributions respond to a need for a more holistic view on environmentalism, focusing on cultural and social levels as well as technical issues to broaden the debate on sustainable architecture.
