Designing buildings and physical environments depends on social structure, social needs, economic data, environment, and technological development and is influenced by cultural and regional need, existing environment, and materials. This title discusses shaping building design through culture and materials and the influence of environment on building design. Topics include passive design, ecological design, and urban design. For academicians, specialists, and researchers.
