Origin of this project

The design of this book is born from the discussion of my master’s thesis conducted at the Laboratorio de la Vivienda Sostenible del Siglo XXI (2013). The vested interest in the development of this academic document and the amount of material collected led me to believe this work should not be restricted to academia. I decided to follow the teacher’s Josep Maria Montaner advice and continue the research which after three years resulted in this book.

    Es posible comprar el libro en pdf? He de decir que siendo un proyecto de crowfunding no trato de distribuir gratuitamente el libro pero en mi caso tomo muchas anotaciones en todo lo que leo y a pesar el papel sienta bien no le saco tanto partido.THX
