Originating from their paintings at Cambridge college at the layout of power effective houses in Northern Europe, the authors examine the positioning structures, construction designs, on hand renewable strength assets, and servicing structures in numerous forms of low strength homes.

The relatively high soil temperatures during the heating season afford an opportunity to reduce the heat losses, and sheltering the structure with the earth both minimizes the effect of the wind and provides insulation. Fig. 23 shows the Ecology House by architect John Barnard^50! at Osterville, Massachusetts, which is completely underground and features an internal courtyard; solar collectors are combined with a forced-air furnace for heating. A reduction of 75% in the energy demand for heating and cooling has been claimed.

For houses it may be convenient to think of a heavyweight house as one with a double wall of, say, brick on the outside and concrete block inside and a lightweight house to be of single-brick construction with, say, expanded Fig. 1.

1976). 'Solar energy: its potential contribution within the United Kingdom'. Department of Energy. Energy Paper No. 16. London: HMSO. 1 Introduction Le Corbusierl11 said that a house was a machine for living in - in this chapter we attempt to describe some of the machine's components. Unfortunately, the state of the art is such that, for a given set of inputs, say environmental and material, one isn't quite certain how the machine or building will perform. The heart of our present dilemma is that we cannot precisely say even how individual building components respond in situations outside laboratories.
