Overview

It’s Not Easy Being Green presents the key principles of ecological design and planning in the built and research work of the architect Ken Yeang in an easy-to-read graphic novel that takes the reader through Ken’s formative years to him becoming a practiced architect while showing the evolution of his thoughts and ideas.

Green architecture is not as simple as would be expected. Ecological design is not solely about providing solutions of energy efficiency or the introduction of ecogadgets and vegetation into built form, but is a comprehensive and cautious approach in the seamless and benign biointegration of nature with the human-made built environment.

Ken Yeang is renown for his authentic, comprehensive ecological strategies, and for making green architecture feasible and practical for architects who share the increasingly vital goal of saving the world from environmental devastation. It’s Not Easy Being Green advocates for aesthetically unique, pleasurable, innovative, and hyper-green architecture and design, and is a must-read for all those whose work impinges on the natural environment.
