Professor Friedman is a luminary in the area of affordable residential design and his visionary book is clear and well illustrated. This is a much needed title in this emerging field."--Dr. William Carpenter "FAIA, LEED AP " "Environmental sustainability is not about current fashion; it is about timeless principles. Avi Friedman lays out a comprehensive set of principles for sustainable home design that will be of interest to both students of architecture and the curious public. His case-study-based approach appropriately focuses on small, urban projects. After all, what is more green than urbanity, and how much house is enough?"--Brian MacKay-Lyons "Prof. of Arch., Dalhousie U and Principal, MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects " "This volume on home design offers readers with an interest in sustainable development a primer on key principles of construction that work in concert with natural environments and that respect fundamental principles of environmental conservation."--Reference & Research Book News "Friedman gets it just right, delivering an illustrated, accessible guide for architects, developers, home builders, codes officials, and students of architecture and green design. Friedman charts a new course for residential building--one in which social, cultural, economic, and environmental values are part of every design decision. ... The result is a practical guide for every professional in the burgeoning field of residential green building."--Home Builder
