Description - Climate Responsive Design by Richard Hyde

With the growing awareness of environmental issues, there is a renewed interest in climate and its relationship to architecture. Climate Responsive Design focuses on tropical climate but much of the theory can be applied to other climates; the difference in application is clearly delineated. The broader topic of technology as a generator in design will be of key interest to all those involved in design and building. The book provides a unique first reference for students and practising architects requiring guidance on climatic design - its theory and application - and describes examples of innovative and best practice in 'responsive architecture' through case studies. All types of buildings are addressed from single dwellings to larger more complex building types where the climate controls in high-rise and medium-rise buildings are described.
