Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) is a platform developedin recent years to allow the systematic study of buildings once occupied, so that lessons may be learnt that will improve future design.
Meir, L.A.; Motzafi-Haller, W.; Krüger, E.L.; Morhayim, L.; Fundaminsky, S.; Oshry-Frenkel, L.
This study presents the print office building E&B Engelhardtund Bauer GmbH in Karlsruhe, Germany before the refurbishment, the applied energy concept and first monitoring results from the operation of the low-energy cooling system employing ni
Pfafferott, J.; Kalz, D.; Wagner, A.; Knapp, T.
To the greatest degree modern showed requirements are answered with characteristics of military buildings and constructions on the basis of collapsible constructive system Module which allows to form complexes of inhabited,industrial, public, ware
Kazakov, J.N.
Following the study by V H C Crisp and P J Littlefair (CIBS, 1984)1 on Average Daylight Factor Prediction, the arguments for the use of average daylight factor as a design criterion are reviewed in light of new experimentalassessments.
Pagani Guazzugli Bonaiuti, S.; Wilson, M.
PREA is a joint project between four European Universitiesand three African Universities as well as the InternationalSolar Energy Society (ISES), an international NGO, that promotes renewable energy.
Müller, H.F.O.; Byabato, K.
It is of significant importance, for the health of building residents and the protection of the natural environment, to attain conditions of thermal comfort within buildings and reduce their energy demands for cooling or heating.
Kontoleon, K.J.; Torres, M.C.A.
The concepts of design that must be attended, especially in developing countries, are social and cultural concerns, as well as questions of environmental comfort and sustainability.The aspects of building constructions economicand technological vi

Highly glazed buildings are often considered to be airy, light and transparent with more access to daylight. Their performance, however, regarding to energy use and thermal comfort issues is often questioned.
Poirazis, H.
Speaking about dialogue of authority and business, it is necessary to not forget, that besides it is necessary to consider both opinion and our inhabitants – for whom, first of all, we and work.
Kazakov, J.N.; Nikolaeva, T.M.
The building and construction sector is a key sector for sustainable development.
Papadopoulos, A.M.; Giama, E.
In this paper, indirect evaporative cooling in an air cooler has been modeled. This model has been obtained from the governing equations of heat and mass transfer in primaryand secondary air and water flows.
Heidarinejad, G.; Bozorgmehr, M.
Energy savings inside buildings require a comprehensivedesign approach to balance bioclimatic strategies with the use of active systems.A climatic responsive building aims to mediate externalagents both to reduce climate loads and to create a heal
Mingozzi, A.; Bottiglioni, S.
The Indoor Environment Quality (IEQ) is an importantdeterminant in the comfort and hence productivity of workers in office buildings, and a number of studieshave been undertaken in the Western world which shows this.
Nasrollahi, N.; Knight, I.; Jones, P.
This paper presents a comparison of the characteristics of the energy demand for London, UK and Athens, Greece and explores its relationship with both climate and non-climate related factors.
Psiloglou, B.E.; Giannakopoulos, C.; Majithia, S.
This paper presents the preliminary findings from the first stage of a physical survey and modelling Case Study conducted to obtain Modelled and Actual Energy Consumption Profiles for a UK multi-storey mixed use educational building.
Knight, I.; Stravoravdis, S.; Lasvaux, S.
This document presents the theoretical study of evaporativecooling designed for the outdoor spaces in the Spanish pavilion of the coming International Exhibition in Zaragoza 2008.
Lanceta, D.; Manteca, F.; Martin, C.; Martinez, D.; Serna, F.; Llorente, J.
So-called energy saving measures have been implementedin new and existing buildings over the last years so that the energy demand in those buildings should have decreased significantly.
Schweiker, M.; Shukuya, M.
Adoption of daylight as an energy efficiency strategy is especially relevant for a climate like Malaysia, as the country experiences long sunshine hours throughoutthe year.
Ibrahim, N.; Zain-Ahmed, A.
The paper examines the energy performance of student residence buildings and investigates the possibility of applying environmental design principles and measures in order to improve their cooling energy performance and indoor environment.A detail
