[EAN: 9781844075782], Neubuch, [PU: Taylor and Francis(Routledge)], (432 pages) Janis Birkeland presents the innovative new paradigm of 'Positive Development' in which the built environment provides greater life quality, health, amenity and safety for all without sacrificing resources or money. With a different form of design, development itself can become a 'sustainability solution'. A cornerstone of this new paradigm is the eco-retrofitting of the vast urban fabric we already inhabit. The author presents a revolutionary new tool called SmartMode to achieve this end. This book challenges everyone working in or studying the areas of sustainable development, planning, architecture or the built environment to rethink their current ideas and practices.Introduction: Sustainability versus Negativity * Section A: Redefining the Problem and Goals * Design for Eco-services * The Case for Eco-retrofitting * Sustainable Urban Form * Section B: Critique of Methods,Tools and Processes in Building Design * Development Standards and Criteria * Building Rating Tools * Design Methods * Section C: Critique of Methods, Tools and Processes in Environmental Management * Urban Sustainability Assessment * Regional Sustainability Audits * Sustainability Reporting * Section D: Critique of Trends in Strategies, Incentives and Planning * Futures Thinking Tools * Eco-service Trading Schemes * Bioregional Planning * Section E: A framework for Eco-governance and Management * Constitution for Eco-governance * Reversing Resource Transfers * The SmartMode Process * Index 'One of the best books on sustainability I've read in a long time . clear, compelling, and dead on.' - David Orr, Oberlin College, author of The Nature of Design and Ecological Literacy 'Birkeland's book takes the next step . it argues that design for nature, or 'design for eco-services', is long overdue, and explains how we can do it.' - Hunter Lovins, President and Founder of the Natural Capitalism Solutions 'A heralding work of how a positive and innovative design agenda for the built environment, underlined by an uncompromising valuation of ecology and nature's services, can mobilize our efforts in becoming native to the planet.' - Michael Braungart, Professor of Material Flow Management at University Luneburg, Germany and co-author of Cradle to Cradle 'What a great book Thank you so much and congratulations on its great feat in effortlessly combining erudition with simplicity.'- Senator Bob Brown, Leader of the Australian Greens 'Invaluable not just to designers but to all those whose work impinges on the environment.' - Ken Yeang, Architect, Llewelyn Davies Yeang, UK 'An unusual, and heartening, combination of the radical and the realistic.' - Clive Hamilton, former Executive Director of The Australia Institute, author of Growth Fetish and co-author of Affluenza 'Birkeland is one of the world's leading thinkers on sustainable built environments.

I urge that this book be read and championed by our infrastructure designers as well as all others.' - David A Hood, Chairman, Australian Green Infrastructure Council 'Birkeland brings a fertile and inventive mind to bear on the critical problem of how to cope with the planet's disappearing carrying capacity.' - David R. Godschalk, University of North Carolina in Urban Land 'This is a wonderful book that should be on the desk of every architect and planner.' - Emeritus Professor Ian Lowe, President, Australian Conservation Foundation 'I highly recommend Professor Birkeland's book.a required text for IGP's course on 'Sustainable Architecture' that is a partial prerequisite for the Member (MIGP) or Fellow (FIGP) designations.' - Grant W Austin, President of the Institute for Green Professiona
