Climate change and peak fuel are issues that affect society, technology, politics, markets—and also our built environment. Rather than just adapting to these changes, a proactive and integrated approach is needed, combining sustainable policy, planning, and design.
Smart Building in a Changing Climatepresents the latest developments in the area of climate-responsive, energy-effective policy, planning, and design. New approaches include designing with nature, energy-based planning, bioclimatic architecture, adaptable building strategies, and innovative technology such as the Breathing Window.
Subjects include: Indoor & Outdoor Climate; Regional & Urban Planning; Building Design; The Building Skin; Flexibility & Transformation; Policy & Management. Also with Ronald Waterman, Ken Yeang, Wubbo Ockels, John Worthington, and Jón Kristinsson.
