Product Overview

Acclaimed architect Renzo Piano''s vision for the new California Academy of Sciences is one of hope and grand ambition: to create a model for sustainable design at an unprecedented scale. This is the story of an architectural masterpiece detailing the intricacies of form and function: its 2.5-acre rooftop garden the 60 000 photovoltaic cells designed to power the building and its use of natural light and ventilation. When the new museum is unveiled in September 2008 this celebratory book will serve as both resource and reminder of how humans can live and work in harmony with nature.
