Summary

"The sustainable Asian house celebrates the new architectural vocabulary of environmental, social and cultural sustainability emerging in the five 'tiger' economies of Southeast Asia--Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and the Philippines. The 27 houses featured in this book have been carefully selected to demonstate how architects in the region are responding to the global trend towards sustainability. The book deals with specific lifestyle and climate-related issues as well as rapaidly changing demographic and social trends in the region."--Dust jacket.
