Title: Ecological Urbanism
Location: Lifestyle Design, Culture & Society
Call no.: 307.12164 ECO
This book puts forth the premise that both contemporary and new cities require a more ecological approach to remain sustainable. The key to that is urban design with a good understanding of the environment. Ecological Urbanism documents the experience of design practitioners, theorists, economists, engineers, policy makers and many others in hope of understanding ecological urbanism and its impact.
This book is available at library@orchard and other public libraries.
