Book recommendation on architecture: Solar Guerrilla
Metropolises for future - Cities for the environment
Hi, I'm Inga from VINCENT&VOLTAIRE.
Books are close to our hearts! That is why we select the most beautiful books and illustrated books on topics that fascinate us for our online bookstore. We present our books in text portraits with large-format photographs and striking quotes. In my book column for the onomao magazine, I would like to draw your attention to the most beautiful books for a good and sustainable life.
Today I would like to introduce you to a book dedicated to the topic of sustainable architecture. The illustrated book Solar Guerrilla. Constructive Responses to Climate Change from Hirmer Verlag presents 35 creative urban projects that deal with climate protection and shows a variety of ways to counteract climate change.
“‘Solar Guerrilla. Constructive Responses to Climate Change‘ presents new activist developments and innovations in the fields of architecture and design.“
In the context of the climate debate, the editor Maya Vinitsky addresses the readers and makes clear that global warming, global air pollution and extreme climate phenomena are among the most important problems of our time. With her publication, she highlights how important it is to change our lifestyle and take countermeasures.
“Given the limited amount of time remaining to instigate significant change, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art has sought to contribute to the public discourse on this subject [‘climate change‘] through an exhibition and a book.“
The book presents approaches and projects from metropolises all over the world - e.g. from New York, Hong Kong or Copenhagen. It shows how successful the engagement of urban communities is in the fight against environmental damage and that sustainable alternatives can be found all over the world.
