Summary
"Treating buildings as environments intrinsic to their surroundings the book explores consensus design, economic and social sustainability, and how architectural ideas can grow organically from the requirements of places and people. This second edition, revised to incorporate new knowledge and address new issues, continues a departure from orthodox contemporary architecture, offering Day's eye-opening ideas and practical design principles. These philosophies and guidelines will be of interest and value to architects, builders, planners, developers and homeowners alike."--BOOK JACKET
