About this title:

Synopsis: Harsh winter conditions, isolation and the jagged landscape of Chilean mountains require a more fitting title for houses, namely ?refuges?. The Andes, a continuous north-south mountain range, is an omnipresent boundary to various Chilean cities, but historically construction on the mountains themselves is limited, if any exists at all. If a sustainable design solution for the mountain climate can be found, it would provide an energy-efficient building possibility to alleviate the growing pressure of urban growth. This book analyses the process of designing such an energy efficient building.

In his work and research has been investigating on the combination between mountain design and energy efficiency.
