Preservation, Sustainability and the Modern Movement
W.W. Norton & Company
(forthcoming November 2010)
Greening Modernism, from publishers W.W. Norton, addresses the interrelationships between sustainability, architectural preservation, and the Modern movement and places these issues into historical perspective.
While recognizing the inescapable limits of finite resources, Carl Stein, using a combination of evocative images and hard data, presents an optimistic view of an architecture that improves quality of life and cultural experience by using existing structures that have been revitalized from a Modernist perspective. Specific examples range from individual building components – envelope, mechanical systems, controls – to regional and national infrastructure.
