Summary Summary: From its underground garage to its "green" roof, the SOKA-BAU building in Wiesbaden, Germany, is a paradigm of innovative architecture. Designed to address issues of energy conservation, site impact, sustainability and structural efficiency, it integrates cutting-edge design with scientific research. This monograph presents construction plans and diagrams, as well as commentary from the architects and engineers who helped bring the project to life. Illustrated throughout, the book offers a step-by-step perspective on how every aspect of the building - from design and planning to ventilation and landscaping, and even the inclusion of a company day-care center - contributed to SOKA-BAU's receiving the 2006 European Architecture and Technology Award.
