Climate Responsive Design provides a unique source for students and practising architects requiring guidance on climatic design. Covering theory and application it provides examples of innovative and best practice in 'responsive architecture' through case studies. The book also covers the broader topic of technology as a generator in design which will be of interest to all those involved in design and building. The book focuses on tropical climate but some of the theory can be applied to other climates; the difference in application is clearly delineated.

The architect community is not far behind in this endeavour. Climate Responsive Architecture has become a prime issue for architects. Since most of the literature in this area is physics oriented, it is somewhat difficult for architects to apply these principles to practice. The book has been written with a view to make data, such as climatic zones, temperature zones, and other climatic parameters more comprehensible. The book is the outcome of a long drawn research in the area of CRA and boasts of international names such as Dr Nick Baker, Prof Szokolay, Prof Simos Yannas and Dr Jeffrey Cook among others.

Accelerated urbanization imposes immense pressure on the dwindling energy sources and fragile ecosystems. Yet, the resource crunch confronting energy supplies can be alleviated if we design and develop future buildings by incorporating sound concepts of energy efficiency and sustainability.Covering 41 projects from India's various climatic zones, this book provides thorough insights into the context, techniques, and benefits of energy-efficient buildings. The projects highlight design responses to varied climatic conditions, appropriate materials and construction methods, implementation of energy-efficient systems, and effective utilization of renewable energy to reduce pressure on grid power.This book will inspire architects, designers, urban planners, engineers, and students to build for a better tomorrow.

Vernacular buildings are famous for their climate and site responsive design strategies. In this modern world with highly developed scientific knowledge, we already own a clear understanding of building physics and energy efficient design strategies. There are already lots of generalized observations on vernacular buildings' climate responsive design strategies. However, detailed and reliable measurements and researches on one particular vernacular building really lack, especially vernacular buildings in developing countries. Hui Style Building is a specific building type in the Southeastern China with more than 1000 years' history. This paper focuses on analyzing its design strategies and all the parameters which influence its energy performance and tries to answer this question: what kind of design strategies derived from vernacular buildings in southeastern China, can be used in modern buildings, to promote climate responsive design? A typical residential vernacular house in Xinye Village, Zhejiang, China is chosen as the target house. A three-days field study was conducted to measure this building's microclimate by hobo logger. Professor Yuyu Zhang provided detailed drawings of this house for further analysis. With all those information collected, passive design strategies used in this building were simulated and analyzed by ClimateTool and EnergyPlus. The finding of my research is a thorough report of a typical Hui Style Building. Suggestions of how to combine ancient wisdom with modern building techniques to meet modern living standards were given. The purpose of this thesis is to give contemporary architects guidance and some inspirations for climate responsive design with cultural roots in southeastern China.

In Keeping The Lights On, Walt Patterson starts from a simple premise: that we are making a mess of energy, and this is endangering the planet. Using accessible, everyday language Patterson describes how we could do much better, outlining a different way
