Synopsis: This book details how to design buildings that heat with the sun, cool with the wind, light with the sky, and move into the future using on-site renewable resources. Developed for rapid use during schematic design, this book clarifies relationships between form and energy and gives designers tools for designing sustainably. It also applies the latest passive energy and lighting design research; organizes information by architectural elements at three scales: building groups, individual buildings, and building parts; brings design strategies to life with examples and practical design tools; and features 109 analysis techniques and design strategies and more than 750 illustrations, sizing graphs, and tables in both inch-pound and metric units.
