The Idea Of Green Building by A. K. Jain
Book Summary:

The idea of green building is a creative process that links the built environment with the human health and comfort, water, energy, bio-diversity and other natural resources. The endeavour is to create sustainable buildings which use less energy and water, generate less green house gases, use materials more efficiently, and produce less wastes than the conventional building over their life cycle. The building design responds to the changing micro-climate and varying conditions of natural ventilation and light. The design obviates outdoor and indoor pollution, avoids use of materials with high energy demand and makes best use of space. It provides for water conservation, rainwater harvesting, recycling of wastes, explores sources of renewable energy, and the use of intelligent and bionic systems.
