Opis: Adapting Buildings and Cities for Climate Change 2e - Fergus Nicol, David Crichton, Sue Roaf

From the bestselling author of "Ecohouse", this fully revised edition of "Adapting Buildings and Cities for Climate Change" provides unique insights into how we can protect our buildings, cities, infra-structures and lifestyles against risks associated with extreme weather and related social, economic and energy events. Three new chapters present evidence of escalating rates of environmental change. The authors explore the growing urgency for mitigation and adaptation responses that deal with the resulting challenges. Theoretical information sits alongside practical design guidelines, so architects, designers and planners can not only see clearly what problems they face, but also find the solutions they need, in order to respond to power and water supply needs. This work considers use of materials, structures, site issues and planning in order to provide design solutions. It examines recent climate events in the US and UK and looks at how architecture was successful or not in preventing building damage. "Adapting Buildings and Cities for Climate Change" is an essential source, not just for architects, engineers and planners facing the challenges of designing our building for a changing climate, but also for everyone involved in their production and use. Features include: fully revised new edition gives practical design suggestions for combating climate change through architecture; no nonsense approach from the bestselling author of "Ecohouse"; and, full colour throughout to best illustrate design in practice. "The book is a worthy second edition, presenting the reader with a restructured and retooled discussion about climate change, the substantial risks it poses to communities across the world, and the potential negative impacts it can have on these communities, while emphasizing the central role played by buildings and communities." Hazem Rashed-Ali, SBSE News "This is a real must-have on the shelf of all who are either involved or consulted on building design for the future and is a well-researched book written by someone who has a true passion for saving the planet." Graham Shone, Building Engineer About the first edition: 'A timely and fascinating book on the crucial issue of energy use in buildings which accounts for half of our total energy use.' Stephen Tindale, Executive Director, Greenpeace, UKPreface; Acknowledgements; Climate change - the battle begins; The evolution of buildings; Risk, scenarios and climate change; How hot will it get?; Thermal comfort; How wet will it get?; Wind storms; Sea level rises; Vulnerability, exposure and migration; Air-conditioning ? the ultimate solution?; Tall buildings; The fossil fuel crisis; Fuel security - when will the lights go out?; The players; Resilient buildings; Adapting Buildings for climate change; Adapting Cities for climate change; Adapting Lifestyles for climate change;
