Sustainable Design Resource Guide
Published March 04, 2004
This online guide, co-produced by AIA and Architects, Designers, and Planners for Social Responsibility, offers a well-researched and well-presented introduction to some of the key issues in sustainable building design. Special emphasis is placed on building materials, with whole chapters devoted to concrete, metals, wood and plastics, and finishes. The guide also includes a checklist of product questions, a full glossary, and plenty of leads for additional resources. Overall, an excellent overview.
