Summary
This book is an introduction to the technology of ecological building in the sense of integrated planning: global prognoses and ecological cycles help to formulate guidelines for buildings in the future, standards that must be observed if we are to guard against environmental crises. The book presents the technology needed to integrate the supply of water, heat, cooling, electricity, natural ventilation and lighting into the building's structure and design from the start. In short, the book explains how to contribute now to the protection of natural resources by utilizing solar energy and rainwater, geothermal and other thermal systems, to name but a few
