This book profiles the architecture and environment consulting firm EDAW, which is at the leading edge of designing for climate change and the careful use of the world's natural resources. It provides a showcase of 30 recent projects, following the work process from initial research andassessment, through concept stages, community consultation, planning and construction to completion. The projects range from mega-projects such as designing an entire city with the Arab World's first Guggenheim Museum and London's 2012 Olympic Park to smaller plans such as intimate gardens for children across the U.S. and the restoration of a vast swathe of former salt ponds in San Francisco Bay. Alongside project profiles, the book includes short essays putting the firm's work into context from a collection of prestigious experts in the field.
