      I am always looking for building and design 'cook books'. A classic on the strategic design side is Christopher Alexander's pattern Language but I have found few books with good nitty grity detail design.

      Whilst not 'eco', Detail Magazine is well worth a look http://www.detail.de/En/Sitemap.

      A book that goes one level down from Christopher Alexander's A Pattern Language on the architectural side but is very much in the same vane is (I think the do and don't diagrams are rather good):
      Traditional Construction Patterns, design & detail rules of thumb by Stephen A Mouzen with Susan M Henderson, published by McGraw Hill, 2004, ISBN 0-07-141632-3, £23.99.
