Buildings that Breathe: Greening the World's Cities
Nancy F. Castaldo takes readers on a tour of high-rise forests, green roofs, and living walls created by urban architects and scientists who aim to counter the damage humans have done to our earth. Photographs of green cities and green architecture, as well as additional information about biophilia, spaces for pollinators in urban settings, and the benefits of electric vehicles, complement the extensive research offered in this book and make this resource suitable for senior-level science students and students studying sustainable living in green cities around the world. In the classroom, this text lends itself to a class-wide exploration of sustainable living in urban areas. It may inspire research projects examining green cities, understanding the benefits of urban forestation, and developing an architecture that supports a green city.
