Provides a critical overview of the main climate influences which shape the design of buildings. Written by experts in their field, the book contains the latest research into climatic design supported by case studies and examples drawn from both historic and modernist practice from Europe and around the world.

Beautifully illustrated with photographs, diagrams and building plans, the book sets out the environmental basis for sustainable design into the 21st century. A key focus of the book is the relationship between climate and comfort with various strategies outlined for different regions of the world and for different building types.

Presents the science of environmental design as an uplifting experience and one which enriches the culture of architecture both aesthetically and socially.
