Energy efficient building: a design guide
Halsted Press, Oct 6, 1992 - Architecture - 299 pages
The need to design energy efficient buildings arises from a variety of external pressures: legislation, emissions of greenhouse and ozone depleting gases, public awareness of our pollution of this planet, among others. Experts in their respective fields contribute articles ranging in scope from issues of basic competence to advanced design, enabling designers to obtain insight into the entire gamut of the subject and, at the same time, provide sufficient back up references for individuals to follow up areas of special interest.
