The building envelope is the interface between the interior of the building and the outdoor environment. A building's energy consumption to a large extent depends on certain envelope design elements. As a consequence, for achieving high levels of energy-saving in buildings, design measures with high impact should be firstly defined and then...

Er is een massale, wereldwijde migratie van bevolking naar (groot)stedelijke gebieden. Volgens de Wereld gezondheidsorganisatie (WHO) was in 1960 nog slechts 34% van de wereldbevolking gehuisvest in steden terwijl dat naar verwachting in 2030 reeds 70% zal zijn [1]. Daarbij is de totale bevolking in deze periode toegenomen van 3 miljard naar...

Scarcity of resources and environmental issues caused by human activities stimulate designers and policy makers to search for energy efficient strategies for sustainable development. A considerable amount of energy consumption and CO2 emission comes from the building sector which today accounts for 40% of the world’s energy use. Greenery systems...

Due to the ever growing trend of urbanization and population growth, the construction of high-rise buildings is inevitable and will also continue at an ever increasing pace. However, typical high-rise buildings (the traditional template of a rectilinear, air-conditioned box) are not energy efficient in many aspects of their design. In this...

The paper tackles the integration of engineering performance simulations in the conceptual phase of architectural design, with specific focus on parametric design processes. A general framework is exemplified, in which the use of performance simulations and the learning process of the designer are discussed in relation to the parameterization...

In the light of energy reduction, transitional spaces are recognised as ways to receive natural light and fresh air. This paper analyses the effects of courtyard and atrium as two types of transitional spaces on heating demand and thermal comfort of a Dutch low-rise dwelling, at current and future climate in 2050. The inclusion of a courtyard...

Recently, the Cradle to Cradle (C2C) theory set ground in the Netherlands, propounding that environmental impact reduction can provide a positive economical impulse to stakeholders. The building industry has warmly received this approach and considers it to be a solution to the above-mentioned burden. However, if the building sector wants to...
