This research investigates how ecosystems are able to be robust, resilient and capable of adapting to constant change, in order to devise strategies and techniques that could be transferable to an architectural or urban design context. This is to aid the creation, or evolution of urban-built...
Systems found in nature provide a large database of strategies and mechanisms that can be implemented in biomimetic designs. Although several biomimetic design strategies are currently available, the generation of a successful design concept is still challenging. A major challenge is the absence...
The effectiveness of cool and green roofs to improve thermal comfort could be strongly dependent on the U-value of the roof itself and on the way it has been constructed (ventilated or unventilated, lightweight or massive, etc.). Recent strict limits on the U-values of building envelopes run the...
The Solark I Prototype was Southeast University's proposal for Solar Decathlon China 2013. This paper presents the prototype's passive strategies, active systems and performance results. The limitations, future perspectives and potential for replicability and transposition of Solark I are also...
Internal heat sources may not only consume energy directly through their operation (e.g. lighting), but also contribute to building cooling or heating loads, which indirectly change building cooling and heating energy. Through the use of a building simulation technique, this paper investigates...
Recent thermal comfort studies conducted in two private universities, namely Universitas Tarumanagara (Untar) and Universitas Mercu Buana (UMB) in Jakarta, Indonesia, showed a result that is fairly different from the previous thermal comfort studies carried out in this country. This study...
