The ecological habitat. What materials choose?
Friedrich Kur, Living Earth, 1998

Image

F.Kur begins by describing the criteria to be taken into account for the choice of materials and how to calculate their impact on the environment (attention to accepted ideas!). Then, it lists them by describing their properties, their uses and evaluates their impact on the environment.

In short, a short book, precise and full of common sense.

Thank you for the info....

Who is this Friedrich Kur? What has seduced you in this book about the panoply of books on subjects?

Hello philflamine

I answer you because it was me who proposed this book.

Je t'avoue que je n'ai pas eu le temps de me renseigner sur F. Kur (manque que je vais tâcher de remplir).

Ce qui m'a séduit dans ce bouquin, c'est qu'il présente les différents matériaux disponibles de façon objective. Je suis toujours prompte à essayer de déceler les failles ou les idéologies cachées derrière les discours mais là, je crois que c'est objectif.

Moreover, I appreciated that it explains clearly the notions of thermal conductivity, resistance to water vapor, hygroscopicity etc. briefly of all the criteria to be taken into account so that your choice really corresponds to your House, its situation, any pre-existing materials, the heating system, the way of life of the inhabitants ...

PS: I left another part of answer in the section "Isolation"

(Say, you would make a good journalist ....)


Thank you Christine! ;) It's always nice people who share a discovery.









PS: I prefer Christine to Moira, indeed Christophe has good ideas :D
