Energy and Environment in Architecture: A Technical Design Guide
Energy and Environment in Architecture explains the principles behind the LT Method (2.1), a manual design tool developed in Cambridge. The LT Method is a unique way of estimating the combined energy usage of lighting, heating, cooling and ventilation systems, to enable the designer to make comparisons between options at an early, strategic stage.
Energy and Environment in Architecture is an essential handbook, providing both a generalised description of the issues, and a blueprint for responding to specific design proposals. By providing a systematic approach to the environmental issues facing every architect and engineer at the concept stage of designing a building, this book enables designers to develop their own approach to energy efficient design.
