Beating the heat: keeping UK buildings cool in a warming climate (2005)

Description

Buildings should be designed in relation to the situational climate. In search of 'natural' means for achieving benign environmental conditions, UKCIP and ARUP have coordinated this study. The study indicates the indoor environment of houses that are built in different periods of time and indicates how these buildings can be adapted to climate change.
