The series provides a powerful presentation of the most challenging and evolving architectural and design categories. "Sustainable Environments" focuses on the type of architectural details in distinctive, sustainable residential spaces. It includes sections on components such as cooling or shading devices, building techniques that create minimal impact on the land, active systems and the use of new sustainable materials as well as those that are salvaged or recyclable.
