Environmental diversity and architecture ( file )
6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 390 libraries worldwide
Despite the fact that for most people the word architecture summons up images of weight and fixity, the experience and perception of architecture is dynamic over space and time, whether as a result of movement through space or as a result of changing environmental conditions. It is this dynamic quality of the built environment that stimulates our senses, yet it is rarely anticipated or understood in the design process. This is in part due to an emphasis on the geometric and physical aspects of design - as represented in drawings or computer renderings. Physiologically, man has evolved to perceive change - notably in the visual environment, but also through thermal, aural and tactile senses - in order to survive. This ingrained experience is associated with psychological notions of safety, comfort and well-being - and conversely - danger, excitement and enjoyment. These associations shape the way we respond to our environment and are brought forth through the way we design. Adaptability over time is a concern in the life of a building. In the short term the issue may be how the user can interact with the building.; Longer-term issues include how the building can be adapted to respond to changes in conditions (e.g. working patterns, climate change, etc.). This calls for buildings that have a level of 'indeterminacy' in their design, without being excessively changeable - environmentally adaptable but not neutral. This book brings together architectural research work that clearly identifies why environmental variety is of significance and how it relates to design. Part 1: INTRODUCTION - 1.

Energy and environment in architecture : a technical design guide by Nick Baker( Book )
16 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 335 libraries worldwide
This technical guide deals with environmental issues facing every architect at the concept stage of designing a building. This includes determining the energy use for lighting, heating, cooling and ventilation
Environmental diversity in architecture by Koen Steemers( Book )
10 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 263 libraries worldwide
This book takes the position that the dynamics of the architectural environment is a key aspect of good design, yet poorly understood
The selective environment by Dean Hawkes( Book )
10 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 196 libraries worldwide
The selective mode of environmental control in buildings is examined in this text, based on a research project funded by Mitsubishi. It demonstrates how the principles of the selective mode can be applied to the design of any building
Daylight design of buildings by Nick Baker( Book )
6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 152 libraries worldwide
To complement the critical and objective view of a study of 60 buildings conducted by Daylight Europe, this design manual has been developed to provide a more synthetic approach to the principles which lie behind successful daylight design
Architecture, city, environment : proceedings of PLEA 2000 : July 2000, Cambridge, United Kingdom by International PLEA Conference( Book )
8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 59 libraries worldwide
Daylighting in architecture : a European reference book by Nick V Baker( Book )
6 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in English and held by 19 libraries worldwide
Typically one third of the energy used in many buildings may be consumed by electric lighting. Good daylighting design can reduce electricity consumption for lighting and improve standards of visual comfort, health and amenity for the occupants. As the only comprehensive text on the subject written in the last decade, the book will be welcomed by all architects and building services engineers interested in good daylighting design. The book is based on the work of 25 experts from all parts of Europe who have collected, evaluated and developed the material under the auspices of the European Commi
Daylight Design of Buildings a Handbook for Architects and Engineers by Nick Baker( file )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
To complement the critical and objective view gleaned from the study of some sixty buildings, this design manual has been developed to provide a more synthetic approach to the principles which lie behind successful daylight design. These principles are illustrated with examples drawn from the case study buildings. The emphasis throughout has been on practical methods to improve design, rather than techniques studied for any intrinsic interest. The book provides the necessary tools to assist the designer to provide well daylit interiors, and shows that good daylight design is not a restriction o

Energy and environmet in architecture : a technical design guide by Nick Baker( Book )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Energy and Environment in Architecture A Technical Design Guide ( Computer File )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Half of global energy consumption occurs in buildings. Increasingly, the concern is not only to create a comfortable and healthy environment within each building, but also to ensure sustainability of resources. The environmental performance of buildings in relation to their design is a pressing issue. 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. Other environmental design issues relating to energy use and to the quality of the internal environment, which cannot be calculated by one unified method, are also described.; These topics include thermal comfort, noise and natural ventilation. Energy and Environment in Architecture is primarily aimed at designers of non-domestic buildings, and is illustrated by case studies of health, education and office buildings.; The emphasis is on the impact of decisions made when developing the design for a new building, but many of the principles can be applied to refurbishment or remodelling. Energy and Environment in Architecture is an essential handbook, providing both a generalized 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

A distant-learning training module on the environmental design of urban buildings ( Article )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The present paper aims to present a distant-learning training module that concerns the environmental design of urban buildings. The whole approach attempts to integrate topics that concern the design of urban buildings from various points of views, e.g. active and passive systems, automation systems, indoor air quality, economic aspects, energy and resources management. The package offers both printed and electronic material that gives the possibilityto the students to study the various topics by using different educational methods. Additionally, the present package contains software toolsthat permit the students to examine real or hypothetical situations and to study further the influence of various parameters that concern the environmental building design
