At the beginning of the twenty-first century, the world finally woke up to the reality of climate change and began the arduous task of freeing itself from dependency on fossil fuels. But the time lag in the Earth’s ecosystem is such that our very best efforts to cut carbon today will make little difference to the changing climate of the next thirty years. As we work towards a secure, low-carbon future, we must also address the changes that are already taking place in the planet’s climate. We must learn to live with higher temperatures, intense rainstorms, rising sea levels and prolonged drought. We must also confront the secondary impacts of climate change, especially on energy and food security.

Homes for a Changing Climate explores traditional and contemporary responses to the challenges of climate and illustrates the many ways in which houses can be designed, built and adapted to cope with these challenges. Combining inspiring case studies, striking photography and practical advice, Homes for a Changing Climate is a book of imagination and hope in uncertain times.
