The Architecture of the Well-Tempered Environment

Author: Banham, R.
Type: Book
Year: 2004


This book by Reyner Banham argues that that technology, human needs, and environmental concerns must be considered an integral part of architecture. He systematically explores the impact of environmental engineering on the design of buildings and on the minds of architects. Banham also discusses the use of energy, particularly solar energy, in human environments. Included in the new material are discussions of Indian pueblos and solar architecture, the Centre Pompidou and other high-tech buildings, and the environmental wisdom of many current architectural vernaculars
