Solar Architecture in Cool ClimatesBK0131
To implement new techniques in daily practice, architects require palatable information combined with convincing arguments. This book fulfils this requirement, providing inspiration, an understanding of key principles and technical data on the design of solar buildings in northern latitudes (or the southern equivalent). Solar Architecture in Cool Climates examines how additional costs can be diluted through different strategies, the tensions between energy efficiency and environmental quality, and the proactive control of energy in building design. The book includes case studies dealing with new-build and retrofitting.
