Buildings can breathe naturally, without the use of mechanical systems, if you design the spaces properly. This accessible and thorough guide shows you how in more than 260 color diagrams and photographs illustrating case studies and CFD simulations. You can achieve truly natural ventilation, by considering the building's structure, envelope, energy use, and form, as well as giving the occupants thermal comfort and healthy indoor air. By using scientific and architectural visualization tools included here, you can develop ventilation strategies without an engineering background. Handy sections that summarize the science, explain rules of thumb, and detail the latest research in thermal and fluid dynamics will keep your designs sustainable, energy efficient, and up-to-date.

About the Author:

Review:

'A virtual handbook of theories, principles, and concepts, Designing Spaces for Natural Ventilation is an essential resource for designers, researchers, and students. The authors present both historical and modern examples of successfully naturally ventilated spaces and offer discussions of recent research that challenge the perceptions of "coolth" and thermal comfort provided by air conditioning.' - Alison G. Kwok, Department of Architecture, University of Oregon, USA

'Through a comprehensive combination of traditional and contemporary case studies, clearly expressed basic concepts, and the strategies to implement them, this book provides a very useful guide to design low energy, low carbon buildings using natural ventilation. A recommended reference book for both students and architects.' - Pablo La Roche, Professor of Architecture, Cal Poly Pomona University,  Sustainable Design Leader, RTKL Associates, USA

'For far too long the design of natural ventilation systems has relied upon the architect’s magic arrow sketches or the engineer’s finite difference computations. Confusion regarding what a natural ventilation system can rationally accomplish has abounded. With the publication of Designing Spaces for Natural Ventilation building designers will find a valuable guide to this low-energy approach to space cooling and air quality. The journey to net-zero energy and carbon mitigation demands such a resource.' - Walter Grondzik, PE, Professor, Department of Architecture, Ball State University, USA
