This research investigated how exposure to moisture influences the biodeterioration of facade finishes in the hot-humid tropics of Enugu metropolis, Southeast Nigeria. Physical observations and experimental research strategy were used to collect data from 383 buildings in the study area. The...
Within architecture, microalgae are employed to address sustainability issues and mitigate the impacts of anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. This study proposes digital fabrication of ceramic ‘living’ building components as an investigative tool for design conditions. The health of...
Achieving indoor thermal comfort is essential for productivity, especially in educational environments, and hence has recently attracted considerable attention. Phase change materials (PCMs) integrated into various building components have been used to improve the indoor temperature. In this...
Dynamic solar screens are operable façade shading systems with perforations that are designed using parametric processes. Architects and facade designers have continually applied design patterns of aesthetically and culturally significant vernacular solar screens for creating contemporary...
This study seeks to evaluate the efficacy of several passive design strategies to reduce the risk of overheating in a Compressed Stabilized Earth Brick (CSEB) house situated in Johannesburg. The roof features CSEB masonry vaults and the walls were built from dry-stack (mortarless) masonry. The...
