Revealing 21st century global archetypes, the book [ours] is collaboration between eVolo Magazine and the Institute for the Built Environment at Colorado State University on contemporary architecture trends in sustainable design in selected locations around the world.
[ours] disseminates how the best sustainably oriented architecture comes together to create regional identity in the 21st century. Site specific architecture is a core reality in developing robust, thriving communities and informing the shared nature of the built and natural world through environmentally attuned development. Focusing on three divergent areas which exemplify the quality of local design vernacular that addresses deep sustainable objectives: [Japan Condenses], [Spain Wraps], and [Australia Unfolds] explores how design practices inform a sense of place and provide solutions to complex issues in the built environment.
