THE UNDERDOME GUIDE TO ENERGY REFORM. Janette Kim and Erik Carver. Princeton Architectural Press, Inc., New York, 2015. 190 pp. with 54 ills. 21 x 16 cm. LC 2014-48791 ISBN 9781616893972 In English.
Publisher's description: In a climate crisis, shouldn't every option be on the table? When scientists declare an emergency, shouldn't we mobilize for one--overhauling laws, economies, and the built environment? The Underdome Guide to Energy Form is an architect's guide to the politics of energy. It maps conflicts and affiliations among various approaches to energy management to examine their implications for public life. It catalogs positions held by a diverse group of economists, environmentalists, community advocates, political scientists, and designers. It asks how architecture can realign collective priorities in today's built environment. Underdome seeks to address these ongoing agendas and more than prescribe solutions, discuss the implications of politics on the way we design and build, ranging from the smallest scale of infrastructure to the largest energy grids.
