If you want to see pretty pictures of contemporary architecture and design of homes, then this might be of interest to you Calling this book Passive House is re One of the problems with buying a book online is you cannot always get to see just what is on the inside I was expecting to see detail on construction, materials and design plus how to make a house really efficient What I got was photographs of completed houses with floor plans containing no useful information However, the photographs were beautiful as were some of the houses.
This offering will make a wonderful coffee table book, if that s what you re looking for The photos are excellent, and there are a wide variety of world wide designs, if you are the kind of person who is inspired in their own work by seeing what others have done It may have been that I did not read the title description clearly enough, as I was expecting a book instructing on how to build a passive house, including the elements of air movement, off grid power structures, water usage, site selection, etc Your guests will appreciate your artistic tastes, but this is not a how to construction manual.



not very technical just pictures and a very short description of the house i don t recommend this book for people who needs information about passive design.
