Summary
"Earth-covered and Green Roof buildings are emerging as the premier ecologically restorative building concept for the 21st Century and beyond. Environmentally sound, energy and water efficient, beautiful and protected from disasters such as earthquakes, cyclones and bushfires, earth-covered and green roof buildings fulfill the emerging need for a way of living that restores and supports Living Systems even within highly urbanised environments and brings people once again, closer to nature. This highly illustrated DVD examines the philosophy and practices behind 'terratecture' and goes on to provide key information the reader needs to design, build and live or work in an earth-integrated building, from all the architecture aspects, site selection and council regulations to integrating a swimming pool." -- website.
