The promise of environmental architecture is here. An expansive pattern is emerging where the most innovative of contemporary buildings are a response to place. Instead of overcoming nature and supplanting cultural acumen, these visionary projects embrace the complex intertwining of the site, people and environment.

Explore firsthand how Spain Wraps commercial buildings, Japan Condenses micro homes and Australia Unfolds aggressive design solutions in a climate of extremes. Journey to Cascadia, Germany, Denmark, and Mexico to witness the progressing manifestation of environmental values and human conditions through provocative design. This groundbreaking exploration offers an unprecedented insight into architecture’s new place in a changing climate with dozens of illuminating and often surprising conversations with some of the most renowned sustainable architects of our time. Includes access to the online living index.

 

 “the book ‘[ours] hyperlocalization of architecture’ can be seen as a contemporary experimental guide for the future designers and produces different approaches to ‘ordinary architecture’ with regional sources or materials. in this regard, defines a new way of producing through provocative rules and limitations, removing all ambiguity about sustainable architecture.

when his (Michler) research studies and experimental works are put under the scope, it seems that he is exactly the right person to write this book.”  – designboom
