A fellow friend of ours and Passive Haus/Sustainable Building enthusiast, Andrew Michler, has published his book: “Hyperlocalization of Architecture: Contemporary Sustainable Archetypes”.
Andrew is currently living in a Passive House that he designed and built, in Masonville, CO (with the help, we might add, from one of our companies founders, Eric Harrington). As a builder and a consultant for sustainable building, Andrew believes that; “the best way to change the construction industry is design and build well beyond what is considered possible, and let the industry respond.” –http://baosol.com/#andrew-michler

Andrews book explores the connection between architecture and the environment, placing great emphasis on the modernist movement of site responsive design and build. With several interviews from architects around the world, an in depth look at 30 projects and the theory of architecture; this book provides an intriguing and thought provoking look at hyperlocal design and how Archeticts/Designers/Builders are grasping this theory of building and changing designs to fit the environment in which buildings are built.
