Architecture and fire, construction and combustion, meet in this poetic treatise on energy in building. In Fire and Memory, Luis Fernández-Galiano reconstructs the movement from cold to warm architecture, from building fire to building a building with and for fire, through what he calls a "metaphorical plundering" of disciplines as diverse as anthropology and economics, and in Cited by: Architecture-e Book-Sustainable-Architecture-and-Building-Design-by-Naec. In this book we seek to approach the architecture-energy combination and its relationship to human comfort and the are chapters on thermal comfort, low energy architecture dealing with various criterion for comfort in different parts of the Edition: 1.

If, as Benjamin writes, “designing embodied energy requires designing the whole system,” then architects necessarily. Book Description. The laws of thermodynamics—and their implications for architecture—have not been fully integrated into architectural design. Architecture and building science too often remain constrained by linear concepts and methodologies regarding energy that occlude significant quantities and qualities of energy.
