520    The author explored the experience of environmental 
       architects in Mumbai, one of the world's most populous and
       population-dense urban areas and a city iconic for its 
       massive informal settlements, extreme wealth asymmetries, 
       and ecological stresses, by examining the training and 
       experience of these architects. 
520    "Building Green explores the experience of environmental 
       architects in Mumbai, one of the world's most populous and
       population-dense urban areas and a city iconic for its 
       massive informal settlements, extreme wealth asymmetries, 
       and ecological stresses. Under these conditions, what does
       it mean to learn, and try to practice, so-called green 
       design? By tracing the training and professional 
       experiences of environmental architects in India's first 
       graduate degree program in Environmental Architecture, 
       Rademacher shows how environmental architects forged 
       sustainability concepts and practices and sought to make 
       them meaningful through engaged architectural practice. 
       The book's focus on practitioners offers insights into the
       many roles that converge to produce this emergent, 
       critically important form of urban expertise. At once 
       activists, scientists, and designers, the environmental 
       architects profiled in Building Green act as key agents of
       urban change whose efforts in practice are shaped by a 
       complex urban development economy, layered political power
       relations, and a calculus of when, and how, their expert 
       skills might be operationalized in service of a global 
       urban future"--Provided by publisher.
