2012 ISWA Publication Award Winners
This year, there were 10 nominations for the ISWA Publication Award 2012. Due to the
top-class level and wide variety of subject matter covered by the submissions, the judges had great difficulty in determining an overall winner. After much deliberation, the judging panel decided that Metabolism of the Anthroposphere – Analysis, Evaluation, Design,
by Prof. Paul H. Brunner and Mr. Peter Baccini — a book published 2012 by MIT press (ISBN: 978-0-262-01665-0) — was the overall winner.
The Prize has been awarded at the ISWA World Congress 2012 in Florence, Italy.
