NEW BOOK: "Buildings Are for People: Human Ecological Design" by Bill Caplan

Oct 25, 2016 -- "Buildings Are for People: Human Ecological Design" offers a new approach to the process of conceiving architectural design, one that considers the interactions of the built environment with people and the natural environment. The book challenges the way we approach sustainable design and the human interface. It encourages building designs that are sensitive to people, program and habitat, providing a methodology for conceiving architectural design that responds to such a matrix of inputs.

Buildings Are for People brings to light our ability to utilize a building's surfaces, shape and materiality to synergize with the energy and forces of nature for a more green and sustainable architecture. More than 100 author's photographs and drawings illustrate the text. For those interested in getting sustainable design and human friendly design right, it offers a new perspective, a dose of
reality and a path forward.
