Adapting Buildings and Cities for Climate Change: A 21st Century Survival Guide
Publisher: Architectural Press | ISBN: 0750659114 | edition 2005 | PDF | 384 pages | 5,6 mb

The book is based on the premise that climate change is going to happen and its impacts on our lives are going to be far worse than generally expected. Sue Roaf argues that many modern buildings are not only 'unsustainable' in themselves but are also having a catastrophic effect on the global climate. In a unique argument, she illustrates that the only way we can hope to survive the following century in tact is if we not only begin to radically reduce CO2 emissions from our buildings and stop building climatically disastrous building types but also build only the buildings that can survive in the changed climates of the future.
