Eco-Resorts is the first design guide for low-impact, environmentally friendly tourist resorts in the tropics. The book is the first to offer architects practical, detailed guidance in developing resort buildings that work with a tropical climate and meet the needs and expectations of the client and building inhabitants. The book includes both architectural design and material solutions, supported by theoretical principles, to present a sustainable approach to resort design. It shows how tropical resort buildings do not necessarily require high energy input, in compliance with green building standards. Case studies show how principles of sustainable design have been successfully applied in tropical environments.
