Sustainable design has made great strides in recent years- unfortunately, it still falls short of fully integrating nature into our built environment. Through a groundbreaking new paradigm of restorative environmental design, award-winning author, Stephen R. Kellert proposes a new architectural model of sustainability. In Building for Life, Kellert examines the fundamental interconnectedness of people and nature, and how the loss of this connection results in a diminished quality of life. This thoughtful new work illustrates how architects and designers can use simple methods to address our innate needs for contact with nature.
