This guide shows you how to adapt a double-facade building strategy to your climate so that you can meet client needs for beauty and comfort while also reducing their energy load and environmental impacts. Bioclimatic double-skins conserve energy passively and often resonate with the culture of a place, so by incorporating the features and functions defined here, your designs will "feel" right. In-depth, highly illustrated case studies of built projects present double-skin facades as kit of parts adaptable to your circumstances. A map of the buildings, a categorized index, quantitative sidebars, and project descriptions allow you to access and assess the information you need now. The book also includes information on non-double-skin facades, so that you can know all of your options.
