Green School Primer [Giveaway]

LPA-Green-School-Primer

We have three copies of this book, which we will give away to three random commenters at the end of Friday, September 25, 2009.*

What kind of school did you grow up learning in?  During those formative years, did you have the opportunity to learn in a sustainable and architecturally significant environment?  Think back to those days when your mind wandered.  Would you ponder the exposed woodwork?  Or the expansive windows?  Or the structural steel?  Like many students, maybe you didn't have the opportunity to learn in a green school or anything of the sort, and that's where the Green School Primer comes in.  The Green School Primer is a new book that's been written to educate anyone — whether a board member, teacher, student, or parent –  about the benefits of green schools.

Green-building-trends-europe

Jerry Yudelson is a machine when it comes to publishing new books on cutting-edge green building topics.  In his latest book, Green Building Trends: Europe, Yudelson tackles a topic that's popping up in the news more and more.  Whether the topic is couched in a discussion of PassivHaus, Swedish prefabrication, or otherwise, it surfaces as a question: Are Europeans more advanced that Americans when it comes to green building design and innovation?

Strategy for Sustainability [Giveaway]

Strategy-for-sustainability

We're giving away a copy of this book to one commenter below, so make sure to comment with a valid email before midnight on Friday, July 24, 2009.*

Harvard Business Press was kind enough to provide a copy of Adam Werbach's much anticipated book called Strategy for Sustainability: A Business Manifesto, which is definitely worth grabbing.  Werbach is a polarizing figure in the environmentalist world, and I guess you could say the debate centers upon his strategy to "work with rather than against large corporations."  There are environmentalists that absolutely abhor corporations, but there are also environmentalists that try to change the world through corporations.  Werbach aligns himself with the latter and provides his sustainable strategy for doing so in this new book.

Chelsea Green was kind enough to provide a copy of The Earth-Sheltered House: An Architect's Sketchbook by Malcolm Wells, and I'm glad they did.  The book is full of his sketches with handwritten notes — it feels like I'm reading something that's handwritten just for me.  Wells tells it like it is with his own voice.  He drew me in, and before I knew it, I was already on the last page.
