Urbanize and Insulate by Dylan Lamar describes the opportunity to avoid environmental collapse while actually increasing livability through a complete paradigm shift ofwhatwhere, and how we build.

The book begins with a brief history of the development of America’s built environment, as well as an inquiry into the values which have led to our present troubles. It continues by presenting a straightforward account of why and how a proactive overhaul is necessary at the scales of both city planning and building design and construction. This “fossil-fuel exit strategy” is centered on not only avoidance of environmental peril but also improvement of the livability of our built environment, our neighborhoods, streets, and living rooms.

The book is based on the master’s thesis work of the author, an architectural designer at Green Hammer, as well as his six years of experience with the Passive House building energy standard.

The book is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council for responsible use of forest resources and bears an embossed cover printed by hand letter-press.
