Contents:
What is an Active House? A vision beyond 2020 -- A new paradigm for holistic design: Active House prototypes at Politecnico di Milano -- A reflection on Active House in warm climates -- NZEB and AH: a case study for residential buildings in Northern Italy -- Relevant case studies: a benchmark for future design.
Summary: "The book provides an overview of the Active House (AH) vision, intended as a building design method 'beyond' the passive approach for buildings of the future that will be more and more connected, smart and innovative. It offers a novel philosophical design approach in which buildings, new or renovated, are in balance with natural, renewable energies and become 'concentrators-distributors' of energies instead of being consumers of resources. The book is composed of five chapters, providing information on fundamental aspects of innovations toward resource-efficient buildings, as well as case studies presenting the concept in practice. It demonstrates that a completely new design approach is possible, and that a turning point has been reached. Lastly, it shows how the AH Alliance, along with designers, institutions, industries and academies, is bringing a breath of fresh air to the world of construction."--Provided by publisher.
