Erik Porse
1999. A short outline of Girardet’s ideas and concepts. Most useful as a primer of many major concepts in urban sustainability literature, including ecological footprints, “metabolism” and life cycle analyses, urban farming, transportation, and principles of sustainable cities according to Girardet.
