There is a tendency for Australian energy efficiency design guides to locate bedrooms of houses in temperate climates on the south, and concentrate on assuring solar access and thermal comfort in the living rooms, which are thus locatedon the north. The National Evaluation of Energy Efficient...
Energy simulations have been carried out for a residential block of flats. Energy-efficient measures such as using tinted and reflective glass, external shading and wall insulation have been studied. Life cycle cost analysis has been applied to these measures to find out the cost effectiveness....
Modernity has brought about a general modification of ideas which emphasize the importance of propositional knowledge in architecture. The present essay offers first steps toward an inclusive model for outline, analysis and criticism of this type of knowledge. The discussion is initiated with...
This paper summarises a recently completed research study which investigated thermal performance, as a component of energy efficiency, in current residential building design. The primary objective of the study was to identify the overall priority of design influences for typical residential...
This paper develops a hypothetical urban mass model for thermal comfort in the equatorial tropical outdoors, in response to the need for high density living in the tropics and the increasing problem of urban heat-island. The shadow mask (“shadow umbrella”) that can shade a greater portion of...
