Description
"Sustainable Preservation takes a nuanced look at the hundreds of choices that adaptive reuse requires architects to make--from ingenious ways to redeploy existing structural elements to time-honored techniques for natural ventilation to creation of wetlands that restore a site's natural biological functions. In addition, Sustainable Preservation presents 50 case studies of projects--schools, houses, offices, stores, museums, and government buildings--that set new standards for holistic approaches to adaptive reuse and sustainability. The author covers design issues, from building location to lighting systems, renewable power options, stormwater handling, and building envelope protection and integrity. The book also reviews operational issues, including materials choices for low lifetime maintenance, green housekeeping, and indoor air quality."--,Provided by publisher.
Description
"The book contains case studies of key projects of a variety of types of buildings and provides key principles that architects and preservation professionals can put into practice"--,Provided by publisher.
