The first guide to the terminology of sustainable design. Written by an internationally renowned expert in the field, this illustrated dictionary provides over 1500 definitions and explanations of ecodesign terms. Providing a unique resource for the practitioner and student, this book leaves the reader free to 'dip' in and out of the book allowing for 'bite-sized' learning at their own convenience. It is an essential reference for all architects, engineers, planners and environmentalists involved in designing and planning projects and schemes in the built environment.

Kwn Yeang is an architect and a principal of the firm, Hamzah & Yeang which has offices in London and Kuala Lumpur. The firm specializes in the ecological design of large buildings and sites. Its early work pioneers the development of a genre of high-rise building, the bioclimatic skyscraper, as a low-energy climatically-responsive tall building that optimizes passive mode and mixed-mode systems. The firm's projects and built works include the Mesiniaga Tower (an IBM franchise) in Malaysia which received the Aga Khan Award, the multi-storey National Li.
