The book reveals, explores and extends the debate on the aesthetic potentials of sustainable architecture and its practice. It opens a new area of scholarship and discourse in the design and production of sustainable architecture, based in aesthetics. Architects and scholars working in diverse research and practice areas in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia contributed to the book. While they approach the subject matter from different angles, the chapters of the book help clarify the key issues behind environmental concerns and sustainability in architecture. At its very core, the book underlines the connection between our approach to the environment and sustainability on one hand, and our approach to certain aesthetic propositions and practices on the other.
