Passive Solar Architecture: Heating, Cooling, Ventilation and Daylighting Using Natural Flows Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New Buildings can be designed to be solar oriented, naturally heated and cooled, naturally lit and ventilated, and made with renewable, sustainable materials, no matter the location or climate.

In this comprehensive overview of passive solar design, two of America's solar pioneers give homeowners, architects, designers, and builders the keys to successfully harnessing the sun and maximizing climate resources for heating, cooling, ventilation, and daylighting.

Bainbridge and Haggard draw upon examples from their own experiences, as well as those of others, of more than three decades to offer both overarching principles as well as the details and formulas needed to successfully design a more comfortable, healthy, and secure place in which to live, laugh, dance, and be comfortable. Even if the power goes off.

Passive Solar Architecture also discusses "greener" and more-sustainable building materials and how to use them, and explores the historical roots of green design that have made possible buildings that produce more energy and other resources than they use.

About the Author

David A. Bainbridge first worked on community design, passive solar heating and cooling, building codes, and solar rights at the innovative design firm Living Systems. He described his first water-wall solar home and the Village Homes solar subdivision in Solar House Designs in 1978. Founder of the Passive Solar Institute, and recipient of the ASES Passive Pioneer Award in 2004, Bainbridge consults on a wide range of residential and commercial projects and has completed several solar projects on his own homes. He recently retired as Associate Professor of Sustainable Management at the Marshall Goldsmith School of Management. He lives in San Diego, California.

Ken Haggard, formerly an architecture professor at California Polytechnic, is an architect and principal in the San Luis Sustain-ability Group. Since the late sixties, Haggard has designed more than 200 solar buildings, from homes to large commercial and institutional buildings, as well as the first permitted straw-bale building in California. An active member of the American and International Solar Energy Societies, he received the Passive Pioneer Award from ASES in 1996 and was made a fellow of ASES in 2000. His office and home, in Santa Margarita, California, are passive solar, off grid, and straw bale.
