Reviews

"A timely reminder of different ways of living and housing people. A must-read for anyone involved in housing and energy policy, research and house building or (eco-)design."--Sofie Pelsmakers, author of The Environmental Design Pocketbook
"Written by a builder and occupant of her own eco-home, Pickerill brings us Eco-Homes--a book that unpicks the complexities of social, geographical, and political issues surrounding eco-homes, and that thus helps us to understand much of the resistance to building them."
--Sofie Pelsmakers, author of The Environmental Design Pocketbook "Environment & Urbanization"
