Written for architects and the design and construction team, this is a comprehensive guide to an integrated design process to create more sustainable buildings. The book is organized in a sequence similar to that employed by conventional design, so that it can be utilized as a real-world guide. Learning how to shift into the mindset essential to implementing integrated design, readers will explore into such processes as systems thinking, appreciative inquiry, non-hierarchical leadership, holistic mapping, and linear versus integrated architectural design progression. Multiple case studies are incorporated to provide concrete examples of successful integrated design implementation.
