Effects of Architecture

The efforts of the Chair of Gion A. Caminada to address the energy problem in architecture in a fundamental way are impressively compiled in this publication. Sorted into 12 themes, the elementary principles of creating space – form, geometry, material and construction – and their physical effects are studied and documented using prominent examples in architectural history and a number of buildings by Gion A. Caminada. The practical book describes countless physical construction phenomena and rules in a simple and clear way.
