Energy ,Building and Body
In the United States, the building industry is one of the main culprits in energy consumption taking about 60% of total energy use. Despite some resistance and procrastination, the sustainable development has raised in the whole building industry. Therefore, the use of renewable energies, thermal comfort in the building sector, the whole life cycle of materials and water, and more sustainable building designs are not the remote issue now.
On top of that, climate change is forcing us to reconsider building energy assets, to shift architects’ focus away from the trend neglecting enviro-assets as their primary concern. At the large scale the sustainable architecture might advocate the spatial quality and potential of new structure and techniques for irrigation, renewable energy, heating, cooling, air-conditioning, and ventilation. At the human scale, it might plumb indoor environmental quality, individual productivity, and personal perception on building by generating endothermic and exothermic reaction of body. The exchanges between body and space and technology and city are capable of making long-term sustainability to the form and the way of inhabitants’ living.
It is natural for human being to maintain their body temperature at 36.5 degree C independent of outside condition. Due to constant reaction between body and building, architecture and is not autonomous. Which means that the energy issue is not only about the profit and return investment but implemented matter of inhabitants’ life and wellbeing.
