Buildings can breathe naturally, without the use of mechanical systems, if you design the spaces properly. This accessible and thorough guide shows you how in more than 260 color diagrams and photographs illustrating case studies and CFD simulations. You can achieve truly natural ventilation, by considering the building's structure, envelope, energy use, and form, as well as giving the occupants thermal comfort and healthy indoor air. By using scientific and architectural visualization tools included here, you can develop ventilation strategies without an engineering background. Handy sections that summarize the science, explain rules of thumb, and detail the latest research in thermal and fluid dynamics will keep your designs sustainable, energy efficient, and up-to-date.An Architecta#39;s Guide Ulrike Passe, Francine Battaglia ... by Charles Correa (1970 a€“1983) Mumbai, India, is located on a peninsula with a large curving bay opening to the Arabian Sea on the west side. ... with 3 to 6 bedrooms each, on 26 stories Function: Apartments Structure: Reinforced concrete structure with a central coreanbsp;...
