Synopsis

The last century saw a dramatic increase in urban-related illnesses. Poor office design, glaring lights and bad ventilation, gave rise to the condition "Sick Building Syndrome", and heavily polluted, built-up environments, resulted in the growth of allergies and asthma. The aptly titled "Boiled Frog Syndrome" presents a vital, urban survival guide, offering solutions and remedies to our inner-city malaise. This volume is an essential guide for architects and urban planners. The book offers innovative design solutions to combat the negative effects on occupants' health, enabling the architect to design and build healthier and stress-free urban environments.
