In light of the current environmental crisis, we are faced with the responsibility to drastically change our anthropogenic impact.<br/>We humans often view ourselves as superior to nature. We have developed a dualistic view of our existence on this planet – one that blinds us to our interconnectedness with the environment. <br/>We must shift the...

Energy-efficient buildings tend to cause thermal discomfort due to overheating during summers. With the advent of climate change and increasing outdoor temperatures, the risk of overheating will be exacerbated. Henceforth, the building design must be future proof or robust for climate change. Passive design strategies applied to the building...

As part of the passive design strategy, the development of computational solar envelopes plays a major role to construct a cooperative environmental performance exchange between new buildings and their local contexts. However, the state-of-the-art computational solar envelopes pose a great challenge in understanding site characteristics from a...

Managing climate in museums is always a challenging task since it should meet the needs of multiple stakeholders, namely the conservation of collections, the comfort of visitors, and the protection of historic buildings. The relative humidity is one of the most crucial parameters in this management process, and it is controlled by passive design...

The MOR prototype is a smart passive building with a central building management system to control and optimise the operation of the active and passive building systems and therefore reduce the energy consumption of the building and improve the users comfort conditions (MOR Team, 2019b). During the competition, the systems in the prototype were...

Nowadays, the high rate of urban population growth due to immigration and scarcity of land has significantly increased the need for new high-rise dwellings. Meanwhile, the recent building regulations require buildings to be highly energy-efficient to reduce the building’s impact on the environment. However, the inherent characteristics of these...

Recent studies show an increase in energy use on buildings due to higher cooling demands, constituting an increase of 17% of the global energy consumption by 2050. Tendencies also show that cooling degree days around the globe will also increase and this will display a greater impact on developing countries with warm climates. Subsequently, this...

The increasing population density in urban areas simultaneously impacts the trend of energy consumption in building sectors and the urban heat island (UHI) effects of urban infrastructure. Accordingly, passive design strategies to create sustainable buildings play a major role in addressing these issues, while solar envelopes prove to be a...
