Tropical Sustainable Architecture:
Social and Environmental Dimensions
By Boon Lay Ong
512 pages
Pub. Date: 2006
Publisher: Science & Technology Books

This book was developed from the first conference of the International Network for Tropical Architecture, where experts gathered to discuss the culture, environment and technical aspects of researching and designing for the tropics. The tropical belt, which forms the biggest landmass in the world, shares common problems of climate and natural environment, conflicts between tradition and modernization, the massive influx of rural poor into urban areas, and the cultural and social strain of globalization.
