The book explores the interrelated social, sustainability and spatial principles that underpin the design of more environmentally conscious buildings and places, and illustrates them with models, drawings and images of selected projects by the renowned London-based architectural practice Mæ.

It presents strategies for designing buildings and places that enrich culture and society, offering insights from researchers and practicing professionals, as well as richly illustrated documentation of key architectural projects that put these principles into practice. Each project outlines beneficial strategies for creating more sustainable designs, achieving social justice, and considering our planet's limited resources to nurture the human spirit for the long term. This is a call for greener architecture that applies its ideas around the world.
