Summary "Comprehensive examination of appropriate building solutions in tropical and subtropical regions, where the chief aims are saving energy and reducing pollutant emissions, by using natural ventillation, passive and active solar energy, the use of rainwater and the energy potential of the soil. Traditional urban and building structures already developed by master builders of the past, are presented alongside all the technological possibilities of today."--Publisher's website.
