About this book

Guide for planning and design using active design principles and passive means to satisfy human comfort requirements specifically in hot dry or warm humid countries, based on examples of traditional and modern constructions. Koch-Nielsen shows how a design strategy for urban environments and individual buildings, incorporating naturally occurring resources and specific energy-efficient technologies, can create a location, form and structure that promote significant energy-savings.
