Item description for ClimateSkin: Building-skin Concepts that Can Do More with Less Energy by Gerhard Hausladen, Michael De Saldanha, Petra Liedl, James Rae, Elissa Milne, Honey Naylor, Becky Freeman & B. Teissier...
The facade plays a critical role in the conception of energy- and climate-optimized buildings: it is the building's skin and functions as an interface between interior and exterior space. It provides thermal and sound insulation and ventilation, and controls and guides the entrance of daylight into the building. Climate Skin offers concrete planning advice for architects and engineers who wish to exploit not only the architectural potential of facades but also their energy and climate-control possibilities, treating the building envelope as an essential component within a complete climate-control and technology solution. It provides a solid foundation of knowledge that equips the reader to make competent technical and economic evaluations of building envelopes. For everyone concerned with facades, Climate Skin is a comprehensive planning handbook and reference work that covers all of the relevant technical and physical aspects of the design and detailed planning of energy-efficient facades.
