dc.description.abstractAn examination of air-flow systems and how they may be utilized in sustainable architectural design to improve energy conservation and the comfort and health of occupants. This paper looks at various forms of natural ventilation and explores design principles for maximizing the effectiveness of air-flow for a building. Renzo Piano's Cultural Centre in New Caledonia and the Swiss Re Headquarters building by Norman Foster are briefly examined as case studies of these principles.en
