Description

Written by an architect with extensive experience designing public and private buildings for the tropics, it offers a wealth of insights and information on a broad range of technical and non-technical issues. Taking into account energy efficiency, comfort, and sensitivity to both natural surroundings and local traditions, the author underpins discussions of technical elements, such as building performance and materials, with
valuable personal insights and guidance on working with regional cultural differences.
