Product Description

As the environmental impact of buildings becomes increasingly recognized, the role of building designers and the initial decision-making process, which determines materials, systems, and construction processes, becomes more critical. This timely book addresses sustainability in building design through the development of a series of examples presented as three-dimensional models of well-integrated building systems. The book is organized into three sections based on the integration of paired building systems -- structure, envelope, and mechanical -- demonstrating the performance of each systems pair in terms of interaction and contribution of each individual system and the synergetic benefits resulting from the unique pairing. The last section of the book addresses buildings that have a higher degree of integration and, therefore, cannot be studied as paired systems. Each building is illustrated with a full graphical display, text and analytical drawings to demonstrate its performance in a particular environment.

Key Features:

--Incorporates an innovative and unique approach for introducing and organizing building systems into categories based on pairing systems interaction and their performance metrics rather than the traditional typological organization of building systems: structural, mechanical, electrical, envelope and interior systems
--Provides opportunities for learning to optimize the environmental performance of a building system by presenting focused study and analysis of two paired systems represented as models rather than presenting case studies of entire buildings
--Presents the material as both a catalogue of illustrated building systems and as an interactive matrix of possible building systems utilized for building design
--Allows you to assign different performance criteria to each building system during the schematic design process and thereby equips you to evaluate the overall performance of the entire building
--Utilizes an easy-to-understand methodology, illustrated by models, to detail the interaction of systems with a concise narrative, graphics, charts, and tabulated values
