Description

In his seminal new book, Bill Dunster demonstrates that zero-carbon, zero-waste design doesn’t have to come with a hefty price tag, and is achievable today. This book presents a range of tools that form key ingredients in a low carbon society. Focusing on technologies that are already in use, ZEDlife explores both small-scale ideas (such as shelters and lighting) and large-scale solutions in buildings and across cities. An essential resource for both students and practitioners, ZEDlife offers an interdisciplinary approach to sustainability, making connections to a web of technologies through full-colour case studies of new build and retrofit projects from across the globe.

The argument for low-cost, zero-energy, zero-waste architecture has never been timelier. This book offers a forceful challenge to the status quo and provides workable, sustainable solutions for zero-carbon, zero-waste design.
