Hyperlocalization of Architecture Contemporary Sustainable Archetypes Andrew Michler 9,5 x 12 in. Hard cover. 352 pages. Color images Rdosdl adq2015 ISBN 978-1-938740-08-4 58,6€ / $75 / £47 The evolution of contemporary environmental architecture has outstripped simple labels. A deeper pattern is emerging where the most innovative buildings are a response to place. They resolve the complex intertwining of the site, people and environment, providing a provocative observation of the future of architecture. By starting with the site these projects maximize the natural and cultural resources available and are humancentric. They challenge orthodoxy but draw deeply from the culture they serve.
