The Environmental Tradition: Studies in the architecture of environment by Dean Hawkes

This text brings together a unique collection of writing by a leading researcher and critic which outlines the evolution of the environmental dimension of architectural theory and practice in the past twenty-five years. It deals with the transformation of the environmental design field which was brought about by the growth of energy awareness in the 1970s and 1980s, and places environmental issues in the broader theoretical and historical context in architecture.

The Environmental Tradition Reviews


""The Environmental Tradition provides by example the mechanism for a collaboration between architectural history, design theory and practice which is...likely to motivate an architectural readership...."
-"The Architect's Journal
..."this very clearly organised book with its self-contained chapters, is one to keep by your bed and reread again and again."
-"Architectural Research Quarterly
""The Environmental Tradition should be read by all architects and engineers interested in designing buildings with an environmental bias."
-"The Architectural Review
"Dean Hawkes' collection of well-argued essays, ...makes a lucid case for a return to passive control over the environment, using the eternal qualities of light and structure as the way of establishing a sustainable, architectural future...as lucid as one might wish...."
