Good Buildings on a Small Planet
Good Buildings on a Small Planet portrays eight Danish architectural firms that are creating new architecture where sustainability is not simply a question of consuming less, but also about giving more. More beauty. More meaning. More community. What is a good building on a small planet? How can we create a rich, humanist architecture that is built on a profound respect for local as well as global resources? Good Buildings on a Small Planet presents eight different answers that are framed by thoughts, ideas and new architecture. The introductory essay written by author Rasmus Rune Nielsen discusses the contribution of architecture to a sustainable development and lays out a humanist approach to sustainable architecture. The architects portrayed are Lendager Group, GXN, C.F. Møller Architects, Vandkunsten, EFFEKT, Henning Larsen Architects, SLA and Tredje Natur (Third Nature).
