Description

Given the resource flows through new construction, eco-retrofitting is an essential prerequisite of sustainability. Exemplars showing how to eco-retrofit cities will facilitate transfer, experimentation and adoption. Although ecological design is necessarily sitespecific, generic concepts for eco-retrofitting can show how they can be assimilated into existing structures and processes. Birkeland’s design concepts include green scaffolding: frames that wrap an ecosystem around existing buildings to increase their life span, functionality and eco-productivity.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
