Description

This book is a spirited, smart, engaging guide to practicing effective, evidence-based sustainable design. Based on the Cradle to Cradle (C2C) Home Competition, organized by Gregg Lewis, AIA, and developed to operationalize cradle to cradle design principles while addressing housing needs in Roanoke, Virginia. Over 600 entries from countries all over the world were submitted to the competiion. These submissions provide the archive for this book. The C2C Home Competition was based on the principles laid out in the seminal work by William McDonough and Michael Braungart's Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things. Some of the book's principles - which include embracing energy, recyclable materials, and nature as a model for design - presented formidable challenges even to seasoned architects. But the designers and students who took part in the competition rose to the challenge to create exciting and workable options for our environment.
