Monu 11: Clean Urbanism
Clean urbanism is a broad term that covers a range of ideas, yet clearly involves a minimalisation of such inputs as energy, water and food and equally of waste outputs found in heat, CO2 and water pollution. MONU presents a collection of essays and research based around this subject that features pieces from 18 authors. Highlights include: Randall Teal on the issue on the sustainability of a growing world population, Gerd Hauser on the implementation of the EU Directive on Energy Performance Buildings, Nathalie Frankowski and Cruz Garcia (WAI) on the technical possibility of energy self-sufficient cities and Rogier van de Berg on triggering initiative and cooperation between city dwellers.
