The large amount of energy consumed by buildings presents an opportunity for energy conservation, and facades are one of the most significant contributors to a building′s energy budget. Written by an associate and head of the research lab at Perkins + Will, this book presents practical information on how to design high–performing, energy–efficient sustainable facades. Emerging technologies such as smart materials, double–skin facades, facades as energy generators, and control systems are covered, and case studies highlight how the guidelines have been successfully implemented in global projects.
