Today, even though we may have far greater understanding of climatology and Sustainability and eco design are now common place in todays built environment, yet how appropriate is our level of understanding and relationship with natural and bioclimatic conditions necessary to address climate change? Within the new preface, Victor W Olygag describes how the very local bioclimatic conditions at Limone, Lake Garda, have given rise to very specific architecture, something that Living Building Challenge students on the annual Regeneration design competition, held nearby in Dro, take into account as they prepare designs for local municipal buildings along Living Building Challenge principles.

Kennedy marked it as to-read Apr 07, Belal marked it as to-read Oct 08, Sadly, much of the data, charts and methodologies included within the book would now be included within BIM environmental modules, even on smart phones, based on algorithms, and vlimate applied without in-depth knowledge of for example sun path diagrams and insolation affects.

The architecture of Western civilization has not often considered the problems and solutions of distant regions and climates.


Something which is very close to the current thinking of integrating digital technologies BIM with bio-data, nature and climatology climafe todays restorative sustainable design and build. Although man apparently can survive in any region where he can obtain food, the conditions under which his physical and mental energies can reach their highest development are strictly limited.

Aneclectique rated it liked oglyay Oct 26, Frank Sturgell added it May 08, His housing design has reflected the different solutions advanced in each historical period to the continuing problem of securing a small controlled environment within the vast natural setting — a setting too often beset by adverse forces of wind, water, and sun. Indeed if that is the case then why are we not seeing more buildings fully bioclimatic focused?

I say sadly, fesign we have perhaps lost that connection and innate understanding of the natural climatic conditions pertaining to the individual places in which we build.
