Between Humans and Nature: Urban Architecture that Engages its Environment
STEAR, ERIC

2008, MARCH, University of Cincinnati, Design, Architecture, Art and Planning : Architecture (Master of).
Through the standardized use of high-energy mechanical comfort systems, architecture has lost its connection with the environment. By limiting its dependence on high-energy systems, architecture can promote the well-being of its inhabitants while decreasing its impact on the natural environment. This investigation explores the notion that a building designed to mediate between the occupant and the natural world will inherently respond to the natural world in a way that minimizes energy consumption and resource exploitation.
