Climate Design

Design and Planning for the Age of Climate Change

AECOM with Professor Peter Droege

$40.00

Climate Design focuses on radical design and planning measures for combating climate change, and for attempting to adjust to life on a warming planet. It 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. For this publication, the pioneering design firm AECOM has joined forces with Professor Peter Droege, the widely acknowledged expert in the field of renewable and sustainable design. Together they show how new professional practice is successfully applied to avoid its human causes and adapt to its impacts.
