Summary "Climate change and peak fuel are issues that affect society, technology, politics, market - and also our built environment. Rather than just adapting to these changes, a positive, pro-active approach is needed, combining sustainable policy, planning and design. Smart Building in a Changing Climate presents the latest developments in the area of climate-responsive, energy-effective policy, planning and design. It includes the latest visions, ideas, designs and technology for a sustainable future on various scales, and points at possible directions for the built environment to answer the challenges of climate change in a pro-active and integrative way."--Publisher's description
