Regenerative and positive impact architecture : learning from case studies

By: Series: SpringerBriefs in Energy. ISSN : 2191-5520 Publication details: Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer, 2018. Cham : Description: xix, 94 pagesISBN:
  • 9783319667171
Subject(s): DDC classification:
  • 720.47
Contents:
1.Introduction -- 2.Modern History of Sustainable Architecture -- 3.Definitions and Paradigm Shift -- 4.Indicators and Metrics of Regenerative Design -- 5.Case Study 1 (energy efficiency paradigm) -- 6.Case Study 2 (regenerative paradigm) -- 7.Performance Comparison and Quantification -- 8.Regenerative and Positive Impact Architecture Roadmap.
Summary: This book is a guide to energy efficiency and environmental impact assessment in high-performance buildings projects. It compares four state-of-the-art buildings to examine the steps needed for a transition from negative impact reduction architecture to positive impact regenerative architecture, utilizing life cycle analysis. The book provides a solid grounding in the areas of energy-efficient building and building materials life-cycle assessment, discussing carbon efficiency within a wider context that includes its technical, socio-cultural and environmental dimensions and covers the key areas for green buildings performance (operational and embodied energy). The analysis and comparison of four case studies of state-of-art modern building projects in Europe and North America serve as inspiring examples for architects and building professionals in the fields of high performance buildings, ecological materials and carbon efficiency.
