For two decades now, Thomas Herzog has been recognized internationally as a pioneer of ecologically-minded, energy-conscious building. For him, the exploitation of solar energy in particular is an important formal determinant in developing new architectural concepts in which aesthetics, functional efficiency and sustainability are combined.

Thanks to the essays by well-known authors and to Thomas Herzog's own explanatory texts, this book provides a comprehensive review of the architect's work, the many facets of which are presented in a lavishly illustrated section describing project and research work. In this way, the ideas and constraints underlying the design concepts for the buildings are revealed.

This is the first comprehensive monograph to describe the oeuvre of an architect whose work straddles the boundaries between architecture, physics and engineering art is rounded off by a list of projects and sources for further reference.
