Abstract

This paper describes work carried out to develop strategies and dissemination material to assist the efficient application of solar and passive ventilation in urban buildings. A description of the created website, which includes all generated information, is given in the paper. The website is designed for the 'informed' architect and will also be useful to engineers specialised in HVAC in their discussions with clients. It includes information of the effect of the urban environment on buildings and outlines the principles of solar and passive ventilation and how these could be adapted for application in urban buildings. It then describes design solutions in the form of case-study buildings and design components. Finally it reviews how current regulations encourage/restrict the application of solar and passive ventilation in urban buildings.
