SUSTAINABLE ARCHITECTURE AND URBAN DESIGN
There is widespread recognition that today we are living in a period of profound technological, social, economic and political changes, and this process is accelerating. There is less certainty about the nature and meaning of these changes, whether they should be regulated or liberalized, supported or resisted, and the sort of world they are leading to. Despite differences in the attitude toward these changes, several fundamental processes or trends can be identified that are dramatically involved in transforming the existing world into a new one.
