Описание: Ken Yeang remains one of the world's foremost experts on sustainability and the modern skyscraper. Acknowledging that the skyscraper is possibly one of the most ecologically unfriendly of all building types, he states that until an economically viable alternative is identified, it is necessary to make them as humane and as sustainable as possible. Each project is presented together with data on its climatic location, the local vegetation, plot ratio, net and gross areas.

Описание: This publication looks in-depth at the skyscraper builtform and at the ways in which this tall building-type can be designed to be as ecologically-sustainable as possible. It reviews and illustrates the many eco-towers designed by Ken Yeang of T. R. Hamzah & Yeang Sdn. Bhd. and their experiments trying to design the skyscraper as a man-made ecological system. The book is superbly graphically and photographically illustrated and contains detailed technical analyses by Yeang's engineering and building technology collaborators.
Описание: Presented here are the assemblies and subsystems used in Ken Yeang's projects, illustrating the ways in which ecological architecture could advance technically through devices and components that articulate and enhance 'passive-mode' (bioclimatic low-energy design), mixed-mode, and sub-systems that foster ecological integration between the organic landscape, human occupants, and the inorganic, human-built environment. While the focus of most 'green architects' tends to be technical compliance, Yeang's contention is that an eco-architecture needs to fully embrace the natural world and to have buildings designed and constructed as 'living systems'. Green design is still very much in its adolescence, and there is considerable work to be done. The assemblies and subsystems here illustrate the need for such developmental work. This is Eco-Architecture.
