Biophilic and Bioclimatic Architecture - Analytical Therapy for the Next Generation of Passive Sustainable Architecture


 

Biophilic and Bioclimatic Architecture is a guide to innovative architectural design for architects, engineers and other specialists who are working with biophilic and bioclimatic architectural concepts.
Biophilic and Bioclimatic Architecture has three parts:
• Part I focuses on the relationship between architecture and human needs and the creation process, demonstrating the meaning of architectural value in architectural hypothesis.
• Part II opens the way towards a new understanding of biophilic architecture as a response to the negative actions of humans and the negative effects of using natural resources.
• Part III shows the benefits of combining the effects of the climate with the notion of human comfort in bioclimatic architecture.


Dr. Arch Amjad Almusaed holds a PhD degree in Architecture (Environmental Design) from “Ion Mincu” University, Bucharest, Romania.
Dr. Al-musaed has 20 years’ experience in passive, bioclimatic, and biophilic architecture with innovative orientation of architectural science. He has carried out a great deal of research and technical survey work, and has performed several studies, in the above areas.
He is an active member of many international architectural associations, such as the International Union of Architects, Green Roofs International, Passive and Low Energy Architecture, The City and Ecology, and ISR.
