The Green Studio Handbook

We have just finished reading The Green Studio Handbook. This is a great reference book for Architects, Designers and Builders as well as providing good information for anyone wanting a knowledge of green building strategies.

The book is focused on good green design strategies that should be integrated into projects very early on and breaks them down into:
  • Envelope
  • Lighting
  • Heating
  • Cooling
  • Energy Production
  • Water and waste
Included at the back of the book are some great case studies showing how various strategies can be used and how they perform.

Highly recommended reading.

Great post!

If the economics don't work, recycling efforts won't either.
As our little contribution to make this economics of recycling more appealing,http://LivePaths.com blogs about people and companies that make money selling recycled or reused items, provide green services or help us reduce our dependency on non renewable resources.
