Climate design: design and planning for the age of climate change edited by Peter Droege

The issue of climate change is a growing concern worldwide. The building industry has a key responsibility to pursue a sustainable future. Written for designers, architects, planners, engineers, policy makers and academics, Climate Design aims to unpack all the issues relating to a deep sustainability. Rather than just a series of essays, the majority of the book is dedicated to practical applications of sustainable design and planning. It documents a variety of case studies, including water-sensitive urban design in Singapore, an ecologically sensitive development at California’s Eagle Mountain and the CycleCity strategy.
