In addition to the application of fundamental principles that lead to a structured method for
zero carbon design of buildings, this considerably expanded second edition includes new advanced
reduction of the simulation performance gap;
nature-inspired emergent simulation leading to sketches that become Ďaliveí;
and an alternative economics for achieving the sustainability paradigm.
The book features student design work from a Masterís programme run by the author,
and their design speculation for a human settlement on Mars.
Tasks for simple simulation experiments
are available for the majority of topics, providing the material for classroom exercise and giving
the reader an easy introduction into the field.
Extended new case studies of zero carbon buildings
are featured in the book, including schemes from Japan, China, Germany, Denmark and the UK, and
provide the reader with an enhanced design toolbox to stimulate their own design thinking.
