Eco-Resorts is a design guide for low impact, environmentally friendly tourist resorts in the tropics. The book is the first to offer architects practical, detailed guidance in developing resort buildings that work with a tropical climate and
meet the needs and expectations of the client and building inhabitants.
The book includes both architectural design and material solutions, supported by theoretical principles, to present a
sustainable approach to resort design. It demonstrates that tropical resort buildings do not necessarily require large
energy input, in compliance with green building standards. Case studies show how principles of sustainable design
have been successfully applied in tropical environments.
* Written by an industry insider with practical design experience, knowledge and expertise.
* Demonstrates design practices related to site planning and layout, and re-assesses best practices for a tropical
environment, allowing architects to apply design principles to their own projects.
* Includes international case studies from several countries to illustrate best practice from a variety of tropical climate destinations around the world.
