Passive and Active Environmental Controls: Informing the Schematic Designing of Buildings
Passive and Active Environmental Controls: Informing the Schematic Designing of Buildings is written for the architecture audience. It primarily addresses how to design and construct buildings to satisfy occupants’ physical and physiological needs. The text serves as an introduction to the subject of environmental controls and presents information necessary for the schematic design of buildings. It describes the various components of a particular system, developing how a system functions, how the systems components fit together and how spaces are organized to accommodate these components. The book demonstrates how each system is integrated with other building systems, such as the structural systems and the overall architecture of the building.
