520    Singapore is celebrated as one of the most livable cities 
       in Asia, and Sustainable Luxury shows how the prosperous, 
       forward-looking nation is pioneering innovative solutions 
       for environmental, economic, social, and cultural issues 
       faced the world over. Dr. Paul McGillick, the author of 
       The Sustainable Asian House (Tuttle, 2013), presents 
       twenty-seven recent residential projects created by 
       Singapore's most talented architects to address the many 
       complex and interconnected aspects of sustainability. Some
       of the homes featured here emphasize environmental needs, 
       while others are concerned with preserving cultural 
       traditions or supporting societal and interpersonal 
       needs—such as extended family dwellings. Each residence, 
       however, exhibits solutions developed from a holistic 
       point of view. These homes typically embrace the tropical 
       climate rather than fight it, and illustrate how smart 
       manipulation of air flows, light, shade, water, and 
       landscaping sustain higher levels of comfort without 
       resorting to air-conditioning. In addition to profiling 
       individual residences, Sustainable Luxury looks at the big
       picture, canvassing the most pressing issues—including 
       changing demographics and lifestyles—and examining the 
       available solutions. Anyone concerned with the future of 
       our world will be fascinated by the houses presented here 
       and the ways in which Singapore is leading the way in the 
       development of residential architecture that is as 
       luxurious as it is sustainable
