Green or gray? Implications of green lip service in a hot dry climate.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


This paper presents a number of case studies from a hot arid environment, covering a range of building types and sizes, among them government, university residential buildings, educational and tourist facilities. It hopefully demonstrates how preconceived ideas and lip service have hindered the creation of healthy, responsive, comfortable indoor environments, whereas a basic understanding of the local conditions and the adaptive thermal comfort model could have yielded much better results – easily achieved when appropriate design is coupled with informed users.
