This book describes alternative techniques for designing buildings to specific climates in tropical and subtropical regions. Emphasis is given to “soft measures” and natural means that will reduce energy consumption, well considered construction and appropriate selection of materials.

It gives the theoretical background which is necessary to understand the climate factors, the principles of thermal processes and climatic design.

Based on practical experience the author describes the many practical applications and design approaches used in different climatic zones to improve indoor conditions without excessive use of energy. The use and control of solar radiation, existing wind and natural ventilation as well as the correct use of building materials based on their thermal properties are discussed as central issues, covering multiple applications from town planning, site selection and orientation up to detail design.

Several case studies analyze the thermal performance of various materials and structures and indicate their possibilities and limits to show the reader the magnitude of the effects of construction alternatives on climatic performance.

The appendices include: data on building materials, solar ecliptic diagrams and conversion tables.
