Summary
"The transition from Green to Sustainable needs new tools for thinking, new descriptors that speak of both mitigation of impact and resilience to adverse change. A number of recent Asian projects go beyond the current conventions of Greening. Individually they speak of the diversity of the region; collectively they illustrate six principles that could be a bridge to sustainability."--Back cover
