Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dieses Buch ist ein Leitfaden für Architekten in Form von Faustregeln. Mit seiner Hilfe können Architekten zu Beginn des Planungsprozesses Energiefragen klären. Es gliedert sich in 3 Teile (Analysetechniken, Designstrategien und Entwürfe zur Ergänzung passiver Systeme) und erlaubt ein schnelles Fortschreiten von der Planungsidee bis zur Ausführung.
Sonne, Wind und Licht sind Naturkräfte, die die Form eines Gebäudes und auch den Energiefluß im Gebäude wesentlich beeinflussen. Diese Naturkräfte sind Variablen, die ein Architekt so früh wie möglich in den Planungsprozeß mit einbeziehen sollte. So sollte z.B. in heißen Klimaten das Tageslicht in einem Raum vorzugsweise maximiert und die entsprechende Sonneneinstrahlung minimiert werden. (09/00)

Book News Annotation:

Architects Brown (U. of Oregon) and DeKay (Washington U., St. Louis) help architects who are not energy experts understand the energy consequences of their most basic design decisions, and provide them information so that they can use energy issues to generate form rather than simply as limits that must be accommodated. The volume is 11<"> deep. The first edition was published in 1986.

* Brings design strategies to life with examples and practical design tools

* Features:

* 109 analysis techniques and design strategies

* More than 750 illustrations, sizing graphs, and tables

* Both inch-pound and metric units
