Thirty international architects are selected for the leading role they've played in the professional development of modern sustainable architecture. Fantastic residential and commercial projects are offered as examples of the best new ideas in green living. Green Architecture today presents an intriguing spectrum of offerings; from architect Adam Dayem's ultra modern "Sleeve House" in upstate New York, to Hiroshi Nakamura's Kamikatz Public House, a bohemian micro brewery built from recycled materials in Japan, to the Finolhu Villas designed for a beautiful vacation retreat in the Maldives. Lush large-scale photos as well as copious detail shots are accompanied by diagrams of sustainable features such as active and passive cooling and heating systems.
