About this book

This volume discusses the climate responsiveness of sustainable architecture design and technology in China, Japan, Singapore, and South Korea in recent years, addressing concepts and applications in urban planning, building design, and structural performance evaluation. The four sections of the text cover the theory and implementation of sustainable architecture within various geographic boundaries and contexts, offering an interdisciplinary assessment of the challenges faced in urban areas at different climate zones. The main topics covered are: 1) urban ecological restoration under the influence of climate environment; 2) health and human considerations of building and environment; 3) prototype optimization of sustainable building, and 4) feedback of building performance and design evaluation. The book is intended to be a contribution to the growing body of knowledge on sustainable architecture for applicable use by practitioners, city planners, field researchers, and building operators in building design, construction, usage, operation, and maintenance.
