"Billed as 'the first book to map the political implications of
energy management in architecture, ' The Underdome Guide to Energy
Reform (Princeton Architectural Press) is a complex yet visually
rich guide to tactics that can and are making buildings and cities
more sustainable." - A Daily Dose of Architecture
"The Underdome is a tremendous achievement. The very idea of drawing policy or cultural temperament is really valid and noteworthy, a brand new filter for critical thinking." - eOculus
"For practicing architects or planners, The Underdome Guide to Energy Reform promises to be a useful, perhaps indispensable, tool."
"The Underdome Guide to Energy Reform provokes thinking about design as a form of political action." - Architect Magazine
"In a world that privileges laws and econometrics, The Underdome Guide to Energy Reform offers deceptively simple and largely underexploited spatial tools for leveraging environmental change. This book is a bright diagram for a new habit of mind about design." -Keller Easterling, author, Extrastatecraft: the Power of Infrastructure Space
