Sustainable Infrastructure: The Guide to Green Engineering and Design

by Bry Sarté, Founder of the Sherwood Institute

A complete guide to integrating sustainable infrastructure strategies into planning and design

In an effort to maximize the usability of dwindling resources such as land and water to help humanity strive to reconnect with the natural world, this book advocates a multidisciplinary team approach to design that is not only highly sustainable technologically, but also visually beautiful. Sustainable Infrastructure discusses how engineers are working with other members of the design team to develop a unified strategy that produces the most effective and elegant green alternatives for the revitalization of urban infrastructure.


This forward-thinking guide:

  • Contains complete coverage of sustainable infrastructure strategies for watershed master-planning, integrated storm water management, reclaiming urban spaces, and green streets programs
  • Delivers information on how to account for and incorporate systems thinking, material flows, and environmental performance into projects
  • Demonstrates how natural spaces are assimilated into the built environment
  • Offers an international perspective with case studies from around the world
  • Provides guidance on the role creative thinking and collaborative team-building play in developing the complex solutions needed to affect sustainability

Sustainable Infrastructure takes an in-depth view of the challenges involved in matching artistic impression with engineering principles in a sustainable development context. It examines the innovations in areas such as water resource management, site design, and land planning to help establish the framework for creating the healthy socio-economic environments of tomorrow, while it honors the aesthetic values that celebrate and enhance the human experience.
