Publication of this title has been cancelled. Publisher's description: The Green Dictionary offers, right in the shift towards a new paradigm of sustainability, the widest glossary of terms, projects, concepts, patents, materials, technology, products and phenomena about the optimization of resources, the closing of material cycles, the alternative energies, recycling processes, the environmental consciousness and the new aesthetics originated around them. This book is clearly a continuation of the Metapolis Dictionary of Advanced Architecture, which promoted a multifaceted vision of achitectonic culture for the information society, whereas The Green Dictionary will promote the same for the new society of the 21st Century. This richly illustrated volume features works and projects exemplary for their sustainable practice, and illustrates the voices, ideas, techniques, scenarios, attitudes and transversal references which shape the book. We present an essential dictionarymanual- vocabulary-compendium-encyclopedia about the spatial solutions and products likely to mitigate the environmental impact on the planet; a must-have tool for rethinking the current civilization model and, consequently, the cities and architecture models of our most immediate future.
