The projects presented in this book are excellent examples of how the many facets of sustainability can be applied in the field of architecture. By using the term “green” to cover them we have attempted to highlight not only the most quantifiable factors, such as optimal energy efficiency values, but also other less tangible ones, such as architecture’s respectful and harmonious integration with the natural environment and social sustainability, present to a greater or lesser degree in all the projects included here and closely linked to environmental sustainability.
