Contemporary Sustainable Archetypes

Hyperlocalization of Architecture
The evolution of contemporary environmental architecture has outstripped simple labels. A deeper pattern is emerging where the most innovative buildings are a response to place. They resolve the complex intertwining of the site, people and environment, providing a provocative observation of the future of architecture. By starting with the site, these human-centred projects maximise the natural and cultural resources available to them. The book explores firsthand how Spain wraps commercial buildings, Japan condenses micro homes and Australia unfolds aggressive design solutions in a climate of extremes. Germany, United States, Denmark, and Mexico are also featured. 30 selected projects provide the antidote to the legacy of the modernist movement of generic, technology driven built environments. Illuminating and often surprising conversations with renowned architects on their work reveals the process and promise of hyperlocalised design which folds bold visions into low impact and unexpected buildings. Their contemporary wisdom of site-responsive design offers an unprecedented insight into architecture's new place in a changing climate.
