Pressestimmen"This is a story about one particular building's design and construction. In other respects, its is a provocative theoretical treatise on ecological design and its implications. Quite remarkable... Highly recommended." Choice "Just as the Lewis Center raised the standard for academic architecture, so Orr once again raises the bar for those of us pondering the multiple intersections of architecture, environment, and politics. His book is one of the liveliest and more important books on architecture you could ever read." William L. Fox Orion
