The Green House vividly illustrates the emerging collaboration between stylish architecture, interior design, and environmental responsibility. This groundbreaking book features more than thirty-five residences in fifteen countries—and nearly every conceivable natural environment—designed by a combination of star architects and lesser-known practitioners, all of whom put "greenness" in the service of quality design, and not the other way around.

A curved roof with large eaves provides shade, which lowers the heat load in summer.
