Amazon.com: HASH(0x933ddf00) out of 5 stars 3 reviews

HASH(0x9252a1bc) out of 5 stars a hollistic approach ... 25 Mar. 2000
By Denny Irawan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Designing the green skyscrapter do not begin with 1 : 100 scale drawing. But we have to consider all the environmental factors that affect the building.
I think that's the reason why this book contains basic theory of green building, environmental aspects that become an important factor in designing green skyscrapter rather than the skyscrapter itself.
In this book Yeang convincingly described in a hollistic approach, from the basic theory with doubtless reason, the environmental factors and its application in the building with example of his Tokyo-Nara building.
Indeed, this is not an 'easy reading' book. But to understanding all the factors is important, not only about the separate issue to ensure the main goal, designing 'true' green skyscrapter as Yeang explained here.
After all, this book is a valuabe resources for those who interest in this field.

I knew the item wasn't new but I never expected to the item been in such a poor condition, cover in absolutely decay and inside pages badly treated.
Seller should describe better this product.
