Architectural Record Reviews Embodied Energy and Design
Includes Essay by Associate Professor Daniel Barber
Associate Professor Daniel Barber contributed an essay to Embodied Energy and Design: Making Architecture Between Metrics and Narratives, a new book edited by David Benjamin. Published by Columbia University and Lars Müller, it was recently reviewed by the Architectural Record:
"The stories told in Embodied Energy attempt to make sense of the overwhelming scales and intricacies involved. For example, a series of 'material stories' advocates simple inquiries (i.e., which cities have steel unions?) for improving efficiency along the supply chain; Daniel Barber, professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Design, takes a broader view, linking global energy flows to geopolitical events surrounding World War II."
Stephanie Carlisle, lecturer in the Department of Landscape Architecture, also contributed an essay.
