Current design of apartment buildings is facing challenges of philosophy and form. The need for a new outlook is propelled by fundamental changes that touch upon environmental, economic, cultural and social aspects that led to the writing of this book. Concepts that minimize the building's carbon footprint, passive solar gain, net-zero structures and water harvesting system are some of the contemporary strategies that architects and builders are integrating into their thought processes and design. The book offers information on contemporary design concepts and illustrates them with plans and photographs of outstanding international examples.
