  1. 5 Minutes with Kate Fletcher

    "I'm not sure I can ever remember not being engaged with fashion nor sustainability. Growing up in a family of community activists in inner city Liverpool in the bleak years of Margaret Thatcher’s Britain, it was impossible to avoid direct experience of the necessity of change. As was (for me at any rate), the practice of making clothes."

  2. Simon Unwin Chats with Routledge about the 4th Edition of Analysing Architecture

    "Traditional Japanese creativity has the concept of 'kaizen' or 'endless improvement', which recognises that although perfection might always be out of reach, things can be made better, gradually, bit by bit."

  1. Building Regulations in Brief Now Available in 8th Edition

    Building Regulations in Brief, written by Ray Tricker and Samantha Alford, is now available in its eighth edition, having undergone it’s most comprehensive revision to date. This popular and trusted guide to the building regulations has been updated to reflect all the latest amendments to Building Regulations, Planning Permission and the Approved Documents A, B, C, H, K, P, as well as Regulation 7, incorporating all amendments up to December 2013. This includes the changes to Leaflets L1A and L2A regarding the conservation of heat and energy in new buildings which came into effect April 2014, thus making the book as up to date as possible.

  2. Routledge Chats with Kjell Anderson about Design Energy Simulation for Architects

    "While a handful of architecture firms have measured the performance of their designs and occupied buildings in the past, this is a rapidly growing trend.  Firms are simulating during design, asking for earlier engagement of energy analysts, and going back to check on completed buildings.  Performance, in this case, can refer to overall energy use, thermal comfort, daylight levels, occupant satisfaction, usage patterns, etc.  Their simulation results from early and late design are being compared against post-occupancy results, leading to a more informed design process."
