MEDIA REVIEWS

"Finally, an effective book on fighting the marginalization of performance in architecture. The author makes her arguments through tales from the trenches, humor, and erudite comments, and then goes on to explain how to achieve high performing buildings." - Norbert Lechner, Professor Emeritus & Architect, Auburn University, USA

"Integrating Building Performance with Design gives us compelling building stories about process, performance, and perceptions through the lenses of teaching and practice. Grant dissects, observes, and matches architectural expression with narratives of numerous case studies about the functioning of buildings and their services throughout the U.S. and Europe." - Alison G. Kwok, Professor, Department of Architecture, University of Oregon, USA

"As a practicing architect, I'm relieved to see an architecture educator helping prepare students for the profession by addressing and integrating building performance early in the design process in order to help with the translation of design concepts into functioning built structures. Architectural graduates who arrive to practice with only their sometimes too precious design concepts are of little practical use to the profession and in fact are delayed in their own development into practicing architects. Professor Grant's book, amply illustrated and written in an engaging, self-deprecating tone, provides such guidance to students in the evolution of their designs into buildings which is what our profession is all about." - Peter Ozolins, PhD RA LEED AP, Peter Ozolins Architect, P.C. Architecture & International Development, USA

"From the title I guessed that this book would be some sort of manual, but what I discovered was a compelling narrative with great illustrations. It offers rationale, methods, stories, and encouragement for teaching and learning integrated architectural design that does not ignore issues of performance. It's a must have selection for teachers, students, and practitioners alike." - Bruce Haglund, Professor of Architecture, University of Idaho, USA
