Architecture of Change 2: Sustainability and Humanity in the Built Environment (eds. Kristin and Lukas Feireiss; Gestalten 2009) presents a collection of the most innovative architecture that makes a contribution to a sustainable future.
In today’s changing world, architects and engineers are addressing issues of sustainability with visionary solutions when designing buildings,
homes and urban development. Architecture of Change 2 is an unrivalled collection of the most innovative architecture projects that combine
creativity, scientific knowledge, technical innovation, social engagement and a strong sense of responsibility to address environmental challenges. Over forty exemplary projects by internationally renowned architecture practices such as Renzo Piano and OMA founder Rem Koolhaas are featured in addition to social initiatives such as Brad Pitt’s Make It Right Foundation. From a zero emission ice station
facility in Antarctica to the High Line public promenade in Manhattan, the book represents a broad range of environmentally mindful
concepts that are not only outstanding architectonically but are also devoted to regional environmental and social conditions as well as their global impact. With each featured project fully illustrated through photographs and expounding texts, the book also includes interviews with notable experts in the field including German philosopher Peter Sloterdijk and visionary engineer Chris Luebkeman, making
Architecture of Change 2 an essential reference for sustainable architecture and visionary urban development.
