Climate Responsive Design: A Study of Buildings in Moderate and Hot Humid Climates Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The increasing interst in effective energy use in buildings and of the effectof this on human health, has generated the need to consider more carefully designing buildings with climate in mind. This book provides a unique source for those requiring guidance on climatic design. Covering theory and application, it provides examples of innovative and best practice in 'responsive architecture' through case studies. The book also covers the broader topic of technology as a generator in design which will be of interest to all those involved in design and building. The book focuses on tropical climate but some of the theory can be applied to other climates; the difference in application is clearly delineated.

Book News Annotation:

Climate responsive design employs strategies that minimize the environmental impact of buildings through selecting an appropriate response to a naturally warm climate. Hyde (architecture, University of Queensland) examines specific design issues, architectural elements, and built examples that illustrate the approach. The method of construction, the roof, external walls, floors, verandas, and courtyards are considered. Black and white photographs.
