I am reading my "newest favourite" book just now, the sort of book I can't wait to open at breakfast, and which keeps me at my coffee longer than usual. It's Heather Kinkade-Levario's "Design for Water: Rainwater Harvesting, Stormwater Catchment and Alternate Water Reuse".
Sounds a bit, erm, DRY you say?
Anything but! Heather has a stimulating perspective and knowledge on the world of water conservation and on-site reuse which in today's shifting climate and increasing concerns about water access, management and use is very much needed. Not only is her book immediately applicable to designers in Mediterranean and more arid zones, but even here in Dublin Ireland. Water is a resource which is non-negotiable, and Heather's book offers plenty of ideas, technical advice and inspiration to sustainability system designers everywhere.
