Climate change and dwindling global resources bring with them a set of complex challenges, demanding new design and planning approaches that achieve more with less. Climate: Design,
written for designers, architects, planners, policymakers, and academics alike, explores the current paradigm shift and illustrates how new thinking can convert investments in urban infrastructure, land use, and development into resilient and enduring support systems for human and environmental prosperity. Author Peter Droege, an acknowledged expert in the field of renewable, sustainable design, joins forces with pioneering design firm EDAW, to focus on radical solutions and planning measures for combating climate change, and for attempting to adjust to life on a warming planet. The book explores both the current paradigm shift and design and planning practice — and how to apply professional expertise to mitigate the human causes of climate change, and adapt to its already inevitable impacts.
