Where the Grass Really Is Greener

Eco-friendly building in the world today

The most exciting new buildings today are almost all environmentally aware, sustainable, and conceived to consume less energy than ever before. Discover the best examples of green projects from the Architecture Now! series in this handy Bibliotheca Universalis edition.

From a water treatment facility to an art museum, luxurious holiday homes to commercial structures, these buildings all make a bold environmental statement. Being “green” means being aware of the responsibility in the construction and use of modern buildings; some solutions are as old as the history of architecture, while others are born of cutting-edge technologies. Explore these approaches and many more in this groundbreaking collection showcasing 100 of the world’s most innovative eco-friendly buildings.

A Vital Study for a Sustainable Future

Nessa,October 29, 2021
As a young Architecture student, we are taught in college about the importance of sustainability and how to build in a way that is environmentally friendly. This book is incredible for furthering your knowledge on the subject of Green Architecture whether you are an Architect or not! Books like this are vital to educate people through precedents on how to build in a better way. TASCHEN shows that sustainability is not restricting but liberating, and the future will be different, but exciting!

The pictures are unbelievable.

Matt,April 17, 2023
The information is just enough. If you want more information, you can easily look it up on the places. The pictures are unbelievable obviously because it's printed by TASCHEN. Would highly recommend.
