Unravelling Sustainability and Resilience in the Built Environment

£19.99

Product description

'In this book, Garcia and Vale question conventional wisdom about the rhetorical shibboleths that clutter discussions of 'sustainable' and 'resilient' built environments like redundant scaffolding'. 

Conceived as a primer for students and professionals it defines what the terms sustainability and resilience mean and how they are related to each other and to the design of the built environment.  These definitions are then compared and applied to case studies.  

Paperback.  Some black and white line illustrations. 

Condition: Very Good.  No marks or annotations.  Slight wear to corners of cover.
