BERG SEMINAR 6: REDUCING EXTREME HEAT IN SUBSAHARAN AFRICAN DWELLINGS

Hannah Wood and Otis Sloan Brittain for Loughborogh University, April 2021
 

Artificial cooling puts an extreme in-use energy load on our cities. As the built area the global south is expected to explode over the next decades, it is essential for architects to find passive design solutions to the issue of maintaining a comfortable indoor temperature. In this lecture, we were invited by Loughborough University in the UK to discuss innovative digital and design techniques we have applied working on projects in hot, tropical regions of Tanzania.
