New Green Homes explores various aspects of environmentally-friendly design, from the ecological and economical benefits to the factors that need to be considered when choosing materials, including the amount of energy that went into manufacturing the product; its sustainability; the life-expectancy of its materials; and recycling vs disposing of the materials if they break down over time.

Specific topics covered include climate regulation, drainage systems, and regional planning for "green" houses, apartments, lofts, and cabins. Each project contains photographs, floor and aerial plans, as well as detailed drawings, all of which illustrate how much the parameters of ecological design have expanded in just a few short years.
