The author builds a historical bridge between architectural science and theory/design. He seeks to address neglected aspects of the Modern Movement as a prelude to supporting a diversity of architectural insight and experimentation aimed at twenty-first century environmental needs and priorities. The attitudes and influences of renowned figures are re-examined in relation to current issues of architectural sustainability. This book will provide students with a text for studies related to energy or environments as well as providing a wider picture for students and practitioners engaged with the built environment.
