About this item

This book explores the role of technology in ecological urban design and regeneration. Part I offers theoretical and methodological insights into technological approaches that offer minimum impact and carbon footprint and maximum respect to the existing cultural and natural environment. A diverse range of approaches are explored, such as bioregionalism, zero km materials, waste and recycling, and ensuring integration of such technologies. This discussion is complimented by parts II and III which showcase theory and method in practice, offering case studies that demonstrate the use, or proposal of, sustainable technologies and solutions for regenerating parts of the urban and peri-urban. The case studies offer insights from Europe and the Middle East in a diverse range of spaces, from central urban squares, oblique cities, urban waterfronts, decaying suburbs, to peri-urban areas such as touristic waterfronts, former industrial areas, hyper-commercial areas, humid zones and parks.
