Item description for Plusminus 20/40 Latitude: Sustainable Building Design in Tropical and Subtropical Regions by Dirk U. Hindrichs & Klaus Daniels...
When looking for appropriate building solutions in tropical and subtropical regions, the chief aim is saving energy and reducing pollutant emissions as much as possible. Natural ventilation, passive and active use of solar energy, use of rainwater and also the energy potential of the soil are the key issues here. Traditional urban and building structures, described in an exemplary fashion by local architects for a wide variety of locations provide a stimulus for thinking about positive elements developed by master builders of the past as well, alongside all the technical possibilities that exist today.
