This study intends to deepen how building envelope components work and to offer comparisons between alternative solutions. It identifies the optimal solutions to achieve high indoor comfort levels, such as energy saving and urban heat island mitigation, and to the enhancement of users’ satisfaction. The book explains the building technologies underlying the basic physical principles, and draws the state-of-the-art of the latest studies, identifying possible breakthrough solutions. Far from being a comprehensive review of different envelope technologies, the book aims to explore significant solutions including experimental data and to bridge the gap between the academic theoretical studies and the effective application of innovative solutions.
