Abstract

The relationship of society to its excrement is telling at both a cultural and social level. The notion of green architecture with its emphasis on the naturally pure has so far eschewed waste as a primary generative material. Alexandros Tsamis here invokes a more inclusive notion of the environment in which by-product becomes intrinsic to any project. Copyright © 2010 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
