SmarterArchitecture: Energy-Efficient Communities, Building Designs, Construction Techniques and Materials in Arkansas

Edited by David Glasser and Sevinç Yavuz
Arkansas Department of Economic Development/Arkansas Energy Office

Our grandparents knew what architects are rediscovering: solidly constructed, thoughtfully sited buildings and compact, walkable cities save energy. “SmarterArchitecture” demonstrates how Arkansas architects, landscape architects and urban planners have combined old-time common sense with new technologies to develop energy-efficient buildings and communities across the state. The first book to showcase sustainable design in Arkansas presents 23 case studies that range from invisible upgrades, such as the comprehensive plan to monitor and control energy use on the University of Arkansas campus, to high-profile projects such as the Clinton Presidential Library and Heifer International’s corporate headquarters, both in Little Rock. A separate section highlights community projects carried out by the UA Community Design Center and demonstrates the impact of thoughtful urban planning in creating communities where energy efficiency occurs naturally.

Numerous full-color maps, diagrams, photographs and renderings assist the clearly written text in conveying complex concepts. This book was edited by former UACDC director David Evan Glasser and former architecture professor Sevinç Yavuz.
