The Environmental Brief: Pathways to Green Design Richard Hyde, Steve Watson, Wendy Cheshire and Mark Thomson Taylor & Francis, 2007, £30.00 Four Australians offer an international perspective on challenging the brief early in the design process to incorporate environmental performance. Although the UK case studies - BedZed and Wessex Water - may be familiar, this thoughtful investigation into how to achieve integrated design has a good balance of strategic how-to guidance and detailed information. Benchmarking and rating systems (LEED, BREEAM, Green Star) are explained and international case studies from Sweden to Indonesia delve into designteam working methods as well as market barriers.
