Biophilic and Bioclimatic Architecture is a guide to innovative architectural design for architects, engineers and other specialists who are working with biophilic and bioclimatic architectural concepts.
Biophilic and Bioclimatic Architecture has three parts: • Part I focuses on the relationship between architecture and human needs and the creation process, demonstrating the meaning of architectural value in architectural hypothesis. • Part II opens the way towards a new understanding of biophilic architecture as a response to the negative actions of humans and the negative effects of using natural resources. • Part III shows the benefits of combining the effects of the climate with the notion of human comfort in bioclimatic architecture.
Here is a guide to innovative architectural design for those working with biophilic and bioclimatic architectural concepts. It develops an architectural strategy, which integrates the concepts of passive and low-energy buildings, biophilia and human comfort.

The concept of biophilic and bioclimatic architecture represents one of the most consistent concepts of sustainable building. By considering ecologically harmless materials and the use of renewable energy sources, it brings an enormous increase of quality in planning and workmanship, as well as comfortable living. This new movement aims to create environmentally friendly, energy-efficient buildings and developments by effectively managing natural resources. It merits a deeper exploration.

Climate change, environmental impact and declining natural resources are driving scientific research and novel technical solutions. Green Energy and Technology serves as a publishing platform for scientific and technological approaches to "green" - i.e., environmentally friendly and sustainable - technologies. While the main focus lies on energy and power supply, the series also covers green solutions in industrial engineering and engineering design. Green Energy and Technology is a monograph series addressing researchers, advanced students and technical consultants, as well as decision makers in industry and politics. The level presentation ranges from instructional to highly technical.

Dr. Arch Amjad Almusaed holds a PhD degree in Architecture (Environmental Design) from “Ion Mincu” University, Bucharest, Romania.
Dr. Al-musaed has 20 years’ experience in passive, bioclimatic, and biophilic architecture with innovative orientation of architectural science. He has carried out a great deal of research and technical survey work, and has performed several studies, in the above areas.
He is an active member of many international architectural associations, such as the International Union of Architects, Green Roofs International, Passive and Low Energy Architecture, The City and Ecology, and ISR.
The concept of biophilic and bioclimatic architecture represents one of the most promising ideas in sustainable building. Together with its consideration of ecologically harmless materials and use of renewable energy sources, it brings an enormous quality increase in planning and workmanship, as well as an improvement in inhabitants’ comfort. This valuable concept merits a dedicated discussion.

Biophilic and Bioclimatic Architecture outlines a new movement that aims to create environmentally-friendly, energy-efficient buildings and developments by effectively managing natural resources. The book has three parts:


Part I focuses on the impact of human needs on the creation process and assesses the concept of value in architectural hypotheses.
Part II opens the way to a new understanding of biophilic architecture as a response to destructive human activities and also considers the side effects of using natural resources.
Part III shows the significant benefits of making the connection between climate and comfort that can be achieved through bioclimatic architecture.

Biophilic and Bioclimatic Architecture will enable architects, engineers and other specialists to develop innovative, sustainable architectural designs.
Develops an architectural strategy, which integrates the concepts of passive and low-energy buildings, biophilia and human comfort
Enables readers to develop a new understanding of biophilic architecture
Written by an expert on architecture
