Sustainable Building Conservation : Theory and Practice of Responsive Design in the Heritage Environment
Author(s): Oriel Prizeman
This book incorporates UK and international case studies and essays to identify the overlaps in the interests of energy and building conservation.
The relevance and adjustments of qualitative and quantitative frames of reference are introduced, alongside the various expertise of the contributors: architects, designers, conservation consultants and academics. The second part of the book showcases sustainable domestic and non-domestic heritage projects, translating the preceding research into information that practitioners can use in their everyday work.
The book will appeal to architecture students, newly qualified professionals and conservation architects and will enhance readers’ ambitions, so that they feel equipped and inspired to work with old buildings sensitively, creatively and sustainably.
